The Oklahoma Transportation Commission last week approved the sale of $215 million of bonds to finance the next phase of the state's eight-year highway plan. The blueprint, which includes almost $4.3 billion of road and bridge work through 2018, is updated annually.

The bonds will be issued later this month by the Oklahoma Capitol Improvement Authority. The sale will include $150 million of bonds from $300 million authorized by the Legislature in 2008 and $65 million of debt approved by lawmakers earlier this year.
