This week, President Obama plans to pressure lawmakers into finding a way to keep money flowing to road and bridge projects before funding dries up next month.

The President says Republicans on Capitol Hill, could be responsible for massive layoffs and stalled projects if the soon-to-expire highway trust fund is not renewed.

The White House said Monday President Obama would use two stops this week to advance plans that would spur innovation in building and in turn create jobs.
