W.Va. highway projects get $180 million infusion

More than $180 million in federal stimulus money is fueling 105 highway projects in West Virginia.

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association in Washington, D.C., says those projects created 5,015 jobs that would not otherwise exist.

Last year, the federal government set aside $48 billion for transportation improvements over two years, including $27.5 billion for highway, bridge and related construction projects nationwide.

The association's vice president of economics and research, Bill Buechner, said the one-time infusion of money boosted West Virginia's regular federal highway funds by 60 percent last year, bringing the state's total federal highway funding to a record $560.9 million.

Another 15 highway projects are scheduled to begin soon.
