Des Moines, IA— Iowa is wasting no time putting federal stimulus funds to work as transportation officials awarded their first construction projects using stimulus dollars. According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, 19 highway and bridge projects totaling more than $56 million are moving forward — using a portion of the approximately $358.2 million in federal highway stimulus funding appropriated to Iowa.
