CHESTERFIELD — The Missouri Department of Transportation has 34 projects that could be awarded in 180 days if Congress passes an economic stimulus project with money for infrastructure improvements.

MoDOT Director Pete Rahn, at a meeting in suburban St. Louis Friday, said the federal government package would need to have at least $25 billion for transportation infrastructure nationwide.

He said the Missouri projects would total $510 million, but the state could also move forward with many more if additional funds become available.

The projects will be delayed if federal transportation funds are not approved.
