Road Construction Spending Up

The Vermont Agency of Transportation says it has budgeted about $324 million on transportation projects this construction season that's now getting underway.

Agency officials say the money will be spent on paving, bridge repair, highway safety, park-and-ride projects, bike and pedestrian facilities and other projects.

The Burlington Free Press reports that this year's spending is about 1 percent higher than last year.

The big-budget spending categories are $108 million for road paving, $61 million for work on interstate bridges, $54 million for state highway bridges and $53 million on roadway work.
