OKLAHOMA CITY -- The state of Oklahoma is getting millions from the federal stimulus package to help make your travel a little smoother. About $230 million worth of construction projects were doled out Monday, with millions coming home to Texoma roads.

Carter and Jefferson counties will be getting roughly $7.3 million from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to rework parts of Highway 70.

Murray County will also see some of that money. $5.1 million is going to resurface Interstate 35 just north of the Carter County line.

Johnston County will get just over $600,000 to give State Highway 22 a facelift at the Pennington Creek Bridge.

Atoka and Bryan counties will get more than $9.5 million for work to resurface parts of Highway 69.

ODOT says they hope to see some of these projects get underway in the next couple of weeks.
