WASHINGTON — There are 10,000 transportation infrastructure projects under way in all 50 states and the District of Columbia with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Vice President Joe Biden announced yesterday.

Biden trumpeted the projects during a visit to North Carolina, where a $26 million project — the Sanford Bypass — was accelerated by stimulus funding. The project is designed to redirect commercial truck traffic away from the heart of the city of Sanford, relieve congestion and maintenance problems, and increase access for businesses to relocate and expand in the area.
