DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Department of Transportation has awarded $43.7 million in national stimulus funding to infrastructure projects throughout the state. Gov. Chet Culver on Wednesday said $21.4 million of the money would go toward 23 county road and city street projects and another $22.3 million would fund four highway projects. He said Iowa will receive another $358 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act money for roadway, bridge, trails and freight rail projects. Culver said that, with regular state projects and carry- over work from 2008 included, the state will set an all- time record for highway and bridge spending in the 2009 construction season.
