Colorado has wrapped up it’s first highway project financed with Federal Stimulus dollars with about a half-million to spare.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says that the one mile repaving project in Littleton was finished in a month.

Engineers had estimated the job would cost $1.2 million but the winning bid came in at nearly half that-$678,000.

Department Spokeswoman Mindy Crane says the savings will be pooled with other money saved on jobs in the Denver area and spent on more stimulus projects. Colorado’s $400 million in highway stimulus money was divided by among the state’s six regions.
