The Vermont Transportation Agency is poised to delay 38 bridge, rail and road projects that were to be put out to big Aug. 1 because the federal money relied on for those projects might not be available.

Welch will be joined by Vermont transportation leaders at a press conference on Monday in Waterbury.
