As part of the stimulus package, billions of dollars have been allocated to highway and bridge projects. Curious where the money has gone, and which contractors have benifited from the windfall? Check out this exhaustive ProPublica database of all the projects across the country.

A couple fun tidbits:

    –The biggest contracting recipient is NorthGate Constructors, which has pocketed a whopping $250 million to expand highways in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    –The largest state recipient, California, has received $2 billion in project money. The smallest, Puerto Rico, has received $79 million.

For those interested in keeping tabs on the companies that have received contracts, ProPublica also provides a handy tip guide to sniff out environmental and safety snafus. Get to!
