New Hampshire’s transportation commissioner has his list ready if Congress ponies up $64 billion for highway projects as part of an economic recovery plan.

The spending is a priority for President-elect Barack Obama and Democratic congressional leaders, who say they hope to have it ready for the new president to sign when he takes office.

New Hampshire transportation Commissioner George Campbell says the biggest project he could launch this spring would be a $55 million effort for the southern end of the downtown bypass in Conway. Other major jobs include $49 million for the Interstate 93 widening project, $21 million for the Manchester airport access road and $17 million for interstate repaving.
