In the second cash infusion for Oklahoma road projects later this year, the state could see an additional $150m from the sale of bonds.

The Oklahoma Capitol Improvement Authority has approved a resolution to sell bonds which are expected to be sold by 1 September by financial advisers hired by the authority.

The bonds worth $152m would yield about $150m, which will be spent for road and bridge projects by the Department of Transportation.

The bond funds would be used for projects included in the Department of Transportation’s eight-year construction plan.

Earlier, the state received about $465m in a federal stimulus package for road and bridge projects.
