At an event Friday morning that resembled a campaign stop, Gov. Martin O’Malley announced a bridge project in Baltimore County funded with federal stimulus dollars that is expected to support 200 jobs.

O’Malley, a Democrat who is seeking re-election this fall, hailed the $25 million replacement of the interchange at Interstate 695 and Liberty Road as the largest stimulus transportation project in the state.

U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger and Federal Highway Administrator Victor M. Mendez joined the governor, praising him for his quick use of stimulus money.
