U.S. DOT releases $62M for road, bridge repair

Posted on April 4, 2012

The U.S. Department of Transportation released nearly $62 million for seven states to help cover the costs of repairing roads and bridges damaged by a variety of natural disasters and catastrophic events.

The money will reimburse states for fixing or replacing highways, bridges and other roadway structures. Costs associated with detours, debris removal and other immediate measures necessary to restore traffic flow in affected areas are also eligible for reimbursement.

Seven states will receive a total of $61,949,103: Alabama, Alaska, Kentucky, Maine, South Carolina, Washington and Wyoming. Kentucky will receive $9 million to restore service following the closing of the Eggners Ferry Bridge after it was struck by a cargo vessel in January; Wyoming will receive $20.8 million for repairs following unprecedented snow melt and rains that caused flooding in more than a dozen counties; and Alaska will receive $11.9 million to help repair damage as a result of record flooding.

The Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief program reimburses states for the repair and reconstruction of federal-aid highways and bridges that suffer serious damage as a result of natural disaster or catastrophic event. The funding helps pay for expenses resulting from extraordinary conditions.
