Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio is amending its list of highway projects getting federal stimulus money, swapping $115 million from a major bridge project in Cleveland to fund 52 additional road projects.

The State Transportation Separtment said Wednesday that plans to replace the Interstate 90 bridge remain on schedule.

The $400 million project will be fully funded with other state and federal money, along with $85 million in stimulus funds.

The agency says it amended plans to make sure it meets federal timelines.

The 52 highway projects added were already part of Ohio's 2009 construction plans.

The agency also says the Federal Highway Administration authorized funding for the state's first 15 stimulus projects, including $1.2 million for interstate 75 improvements near Findlay.
