New Hampshire government will fund 35 municipal road and bridge projects across the state.

It includes renovation work on 22 local bridges, of which 19 are highly vulnerable bridges.

New Hampshire governor John Lynch said that these stimulus funds have the dual benefit of replacing ageing bridges which could pose a safety concern, and preserving and creating jobs.

The bridge projects were selected on the basis of eligibility for federal funds, readiness for construction, bridge condition, volume of traffic, length of detour and access to critical facilities, according to transportation commissioner George Campbell.

In addition, the Government is also providing funding for four critical state aid highway projects and nine transportation enhancement projects.
