August 07, 2014

ST. PAUL, MN – Responding to statewide flooding earlier this summer, the Federal Highway Administration has allocated an additional $5 million in emergency funds to help cover the costs of emergency repairs to Minnesota roads and bridges.
 
This new aid is an addition to the $5 million in emergency repair funds Minnesota received in June and July. In total, the State of Minnesota has secured $10 million from the Federal Highway Administration for road and bridge fixes.
 
The Minnesota Department of Transportation will make these funds available to local agencies to assist with cash flow, and to help expedite local flood-related road repairs.
