DALLAS - The Oklahoma Transportation Commission on Monday awarded $228.4 million of construction contracts financed by money the state will receive from the $787 billion federal infrastructure stimulus plan.

The total of $270 million in contracts allocated at the meeting to the 42 projects across the state is almost three times bigger than the previous largest monthly contract volume awarded by the commission. The total includes state highway dollars in addition to the federal stimulus funds.
