"This project is putting people to work and will drastically improve highway safety for the driving public. I commend Secretary LaHood and his team for the outstanding job they are doing in getting funds obligated quickly."
"TxDOT has been busy putting Texans to work on dozens of ready-to-go mobility, preservation and maintenance projects. I am extremely proud of the hard work of our staff to reach the 50% goal by June 12. I know this amazing accomplishment would not have been obtained without cooperation and input from all of our local partners, our Congressional delegation and the Federal Highway Administration."
