MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) Federal stimulus money is expected to speed up construction of the airport access road in Manchester, N.H.

The road now is expected to open late next year, about two years ahead of schedule.

The money is part of nearly $150 million in transportation funds the state will receive. The state has identified 17 highway projects it hopes to complete with its $114 million share, though the collective estimate of the project is $7 million more than the available funds. According to the New Hampshire Sunday News, more than 70 communities hope to get money for bridge, road or other transportation improvements, such as sidewalks and trails.
