Missouri gets emergency federal highway funds

The U.S. Department of Transportation Sept. 14 announced $2 million in quick release emergency funds immediately available to the Missouri Department of Transportation to begin repairs to roads and bridges damaged by summer floods.

Beginning in June, Missouri sustained widespread flooding of the Missouri River along the northwest region of the state that has resulted in substantial damage to roads and bridges.

MoDOT will use quick release funds to expedite emergency repairs to roads, highways and bridges. MoDOT estimates overall damage to federal-aid highways during the floods will exceed $11 million.

I-29 in Missouri is dry but will remain closed until the Iowa portion of the highway is reopened, MoDOT said.
