Newsom praises federal stimulus funding 

Mayor Gavin Newsom joined Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi Wednesday at an event to highlight job creation and economic growth spurred by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act.

At the event, which was held at San Francisco State University, Newsom applauded the Federal government for awarding $46 million for the replacement of Doyle Drive in San Francisco.

“With Speaker Pelosi’s leadership, San Francisco is investing federal stimulus dollars to rebuild our city and regional infrastructure and create thousands of jobs,” Newsom said. “The Doyle Drive replacement project will rebuild a critical and seismically vulnerable regional transportation link and boost our local economy.”

The money was part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act, which generated competition for transportation projects that will benefit the economy.

San Francisco has received $328 million in federal stimulus funding, helping to create more than 2,900 jobs, according to the mayor’s office.
