Obama Signs 90-Day Highway Bill Extension

Hemera/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- Road and bridge construction around the country will not come to an abrupt halt, for now.

President Obama has signed the 90-day extension of money for highway and road construction, meaning more than a million jobs will not be interrupted.

Since 2009, Congress has been unable to agree on long-term financing of highway and transportation projects and has passed short rescue bills nine times.
