A major victory for the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The U.S. House approved an almost $11 billion measure today to keep the Federal Highway Trust Fund operating until next Summer. The fund helps pay for road and bridge projects across the country.

The Senate has not yet acted on its own version of the bill.
