The answering machine at RG Steel's Sparrows Point plant hasn't been working much better than the accounts payable department or the sales operation. "Thank you for calling Severstal's Sparrows Point general office," the voice mail prompt said as recently as a few weeks ago, even though Severstal North America hasn't owned the plant since March. Demand for Sparrows' construction steel is miserable. The plant is still scrambling to regain customers that vanished after it was all but mothballed last year.

In an effort to save billions of dollars annually in upkeep and energy costs on the often-vacant buildings, the Obama administration proposed last year ditching 14,000 properties the government no longer needs.
