The New Hampshire Department of Transportation says it’s entire share of federal stimulus money for road and bridge projects is now obligated.

The state beat by more than two months the March 2 deadline for committing the $129.4 million.

The department says the funds have been used to triple the number of highway miles paved in 2009 and financed improvements to 78 bridges maintained by the state. And the department says funds have also been used for 35 municipal road and bridge projects statewide.

According to a news release issued Wednesday, the department has also obligated the entire $4.6 million in stimulus funds authorized for airport projects and 93 percent of the $13.5 million authorized for transit projects.
