More Projects and Paychecks: Transportation’s Summer of Recovery

Source: American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), September 2010

The transportation investment in stimulus is working–and in every state across the nation. More than $40 billion in highway and transit projects have been approved and are moving forward–almost $30 billion are under contract on 16,761 different projects. More than 63,000 direct on-project jobs have been created or sustained in August as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and states have already paid out $3.2 billion in payroll.
