The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) says it will spend about $75m of its federal stimulus fund on roads and bridges.

The works include resurfacing the decks and bridges of Tulsa’s Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL) along with the Interstate 244, replacement of five bridges in Western Oklahoma and most of the rural bridges that carry agricultural and energy products.

The deficient and functionally obsolete bridges of the state will be resurfaced, the Tulsa World website reported.

The money, from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will be spent on replacement or repair of nearly 100 bridges, mainly in Tulsa County.
