RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Highway and bridge projects in Virginia are getting a financial boost from other states that didn’t obligate all their federal transportation dollars for projects.

The Virginia Department of Transportation said Sept. 24 that $32 million in federal transportation spending authority has been redistributed from other states to Virginia.

VDOT said the funding will be used to accelerate the Gilmerton Bridge replacement in Hampton Roads, the Dulles Rail extension, the Virginia Railway Express and other projects.

States that don’t obligate their federal dollars have to return that spending authority to the Federal Highway Administration. The agency then redistributes the spending authority to states that have obligated all their federal dollars and have other eligible projects.
