DOVER, Del. (AP) The Rehoboth Beach boardwalk replacement is the state’s biggest transit project funded by the federal stimulus dollars yet.

Gov. Jack Markell said the state is spending more than $7 million of federal money on the mile-long boardwalk. The project should be finished by May 2010.

The state spent $5.7 million in stimulus funds on the Dover Transit Center construction project.

The state expects to receive about $800 million in federal stimulus funding.

Delaware Department of Transportation Secretary Carolann Wicks said contractors are telling her that employees are being hired because stimulus funds are funding projects that create jobs.

Bids for the second phase of the boardwalk project will be awarded in July.
