Vice President Biden says the $787 billion government stimulus package is creating jobs with infrastructure projects like a new bridge in central Pennsylvania.
Biden led a delegation from the Obama administration to the groundbreaking for the bridge in Carlisle, the first stop of his cross-country "Road to Recovery" tour.
The replacement of the 80-year-old Carlisle bridge will cost $1.7 million and should open by the end of November. Pennsylvania will get about $1 billion in stimulus money for other infrastructure projects.
Biden's next stop is Overland Park, Kan. for a highway project groundbreaking. The tour continues Friday in Michigan.
