Highway Money Already Being Used

Cheyenne, Wy – This year highway construction crews around the state will be a little extra busy. That's because the state legislature spent an extra 95 million dollars this year on road construction. Wyoming Department of Transportation spokesman, Dave Kingham, says that money is paying for about 20 projects. While this money obviously helps, a report by WyDOT shows the state has a total backlog of 250 million dollars in projects.
