MADISON, Wis. (AP) Another 32 highway and bridge construction projects in Wisconsin should be completed this year under the federal stimulus bill.

The Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee on May 12 approved Gov. Jim Doyle’s plan to spend $44.5 million of stimulus funding for the projects across the state.

The Department of Transportation plans to seek bids for the projects this summer and they are expected to be finished by the end of the year.

The committee in March approved the first wave of 49 local projects funded by the stimulus package, which is expected to send at least $529 million to Wisconsin for spending on highways and bridges.
