SALT LAKE CITY (AP) More than $49 million in federal stimulus funds will go to improve transportation in Utah.

The money is for construction of a new light rail vehicle maintenance facility and the purchase of 17 new buses in the Salt Lake City area. Some of the money also will be used for the construction of transit operations facility and a new bus in St. George.
