WASHINGTON, November 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — New Hampshire mobilized $209.8 million in federal highways and bridges funds in fiscal year 2022 to help launch 206 new improvement projects in communities across the state in the first year of the law on Infrastructure Investment and Jobs (IIJA), a review of US Treasury Department data via September 30 shows.
