DENVER (AP) -- Nine of the state's worst bridges are ready to be fixed with money from the economic stimulus being negotiated in Washington.

Those bridges are among the 125 bridges rated as "poor" by the state Transportation Department because they're in need of significant maintenance or repairs.

Chief engineer Pam Hutton told state lawmakers Wednesday that more of those bridges could be repaired in the second round of projects.

Right now, Colorado is expected to get about $400 million for highway projects and another $100 million for transit. The state would have to spend about half the money within 180 days. Hutton said the rest could be spent later this year and more bridge projects could be ready to go by then.
