Stimulus money is beginning to pour into our state and a lot of it is going towards infrastructure.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti was in Greenville Tuesday to talk about all the future projects.

Along with the list of highway and road improvements he also talked about other transportation improvements.

The Greenville Bus System will be getting two new hybrid buses and the Pitt County Airport and Railroads will also be worked on.

Conti says not only are the projects improving transportation but they're also creating jobs.

And what about the condition of our roads now? The DOT Secretary said along with stimulus money projects we can also expect other construction and improvements to continue despite a recession.
