RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina’s transportation secretary said he’ll use more than $48 million in federal stimulus cash to jump-start eight highway projects.

Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said April 29 that the contracts total $48.6 million. The projects include areas in Forsyth, Franklin, Henderson, Johnston, Martin, Swain, Wake, and Duplin and Sampson counties.

Seven projects will resurface major routes throughout the state, and one project will construct a new connector road between two major routes.

The Transportation Department received $838 million through the federal economic recovery plan. That includes $735 million for highway and bridge projects, 90 percent of which has already been allocated.
