Highway, road and bridge project investments by the US Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have reached the $20bn mark.

More than 75% of the $26.6bn that the FHWA received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for federal highway and bridge projects has already been used for different projects.

FHWA passed the mark with the $36m replacement of the I-25/Alameda bridge in Denver, CO.

Nearly $760m has been approved for the project.

Other projects include the $26.2m I-279/Fort Duquesne Bridge preservation project in Pittsburgh, PA, and the three-mile extension of Minneapolis’ Trunk Highway 610 to I-94.

To date, 5,000 out of the 8,500 approved highway projects are running to schedule.
