D-O-T spokesperson Dena Gray-Fisher says they’re all projects that are in the long-term plan, five to 25 years away, and are not currently set for construction. Gray-Fisher says they’re putting 38 of 59 projects on hold and are going from four billion dollars in investment back to two billion dollars.
