SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah Department of Transportation officials say they have already obligated 64 percent — or $96.5 million — of the nearly $150 million in federal stimulus funds Utah is receiving for road construction.

Federal stimulus guidelines require half of a state’s road construction money to be obligated within 120 days.

UDOT is well ahead of schedule, having obligated the money in two weeks, 15 weeks ahead of schedule.

In total, Utah will have 56 road projects funded by the federal stimulus money. All of the federally funded projects have to be finished within three years.

UDOT is getting $149.5 million of the $213 million in stimulus money being spent on transportation projects in Utah. The rest will go to regional transportation planning groups such as the Wasatch Front Regional Council.
