CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The number of people working on New Hampshire road projects paid for with federal stimulus money doubled in one month.

New figures from the state show 915 people working on 19 stimulus projects in June, up from 458 in May. The numbers were expected to increase again in July.

New Hampshire has been spending federal stimulus money on transportation faster than most states, in part because it has sped up contract approvals, changed laws and designated a statewide stimulus director. It also had a huge backlog of projects that could be started quickly.
