Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley last week said that the first phase of transportation projects to be financed by the federal economic stimulus package will take about $365 million of the $610 million provided to the state for such work.

“President Obama and Congress have delivered much-needed economic recovery funds and now it is time to put our people to work,” O’Malley said in a release. “We are acting immediately to get transportation projects out the door so we can preserve jobs, protect families, and improve the economy in every region of our state.”
