DOT gives road repair funds

The U.S. Department of Transportation on May 24 made $1 million in quick release emergency funds immediately available to the Minnesota Department of Transportation to repair roads and bridges damaged by floods from this spring’s snowmelt.

Quick release emergency funds provided by DOT’s Federal Highway Administration will be used to reimburse the state and counties for repair costs. FHWA Administrator Victor Mendez says the program is bracing for additional funding requests from states across the country this year that have been battered by extreme weather events.

Widespread flooding in more than 40 counties and tribal nations near the Mississippi, MnDOT will use the funds to continue repairs on roads and bridges that were damaged by erosion and seepage.
