The U.S. Department of Transportation will provide more than $319 million to states nationwide to cover the cost of repairing bridges and roads damaged by a variety of natural disasters.

“Restoring vital transportation links requires immediate attention so people can get back to their daily routines and activities,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Monday (April 11). "We stand ready to provide the financial backing, so states can make repairs quickly and without hesitation.”

The funds include money to repair US 129 (SR 115) in Tennessee, damaged in a rock slide in March 2010.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will provide a total of $319,710,818 from its emergency relief program to 28 states, Puerto Rico and American Samoa to reimburse them for damages caused by storms, flooding, hurricanes and other natural events.
 
‘Critical’ Restoration

“Restoring roads and bridges is critical after a natural disaster or catastrophic event," said FHWA Administrator Victor Mendez. "We want states to know that we will reimburse them for work that is necessary to get roads and bridges back in service again after an emergency.”

The recipients include Tennessee, which will receive $39 million for damage from storms and flooding; North Dakota, which will receive $33.5 million for flooding damage in the Devil's Lake region; and Rhode Island, which will receive $26 million for flood damage.

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

Devils Lake Basin, North Dakota’s largest natural body of water, has been the site of repeated flooding.

The FHWA’s emergency relief program reimburses states for the repair or reconstruction of federal-aid highways that were damaged in disasters and catastrophic failures.
