32 states will receive emergency relief funds to repair roads and bridges damaged by storms, floods and other events.
“The Administration is helping states and territories repair and rebuild their infrastructure in the wake of last year’s hurricanes and other disasters across the country,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.
$263.7 million or more than a fourth of the total amount provided today will be used to repair damages caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. These include:
- $75,000,000 to Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey
- $97,000,000 to Florida as they repair damage from Hurricane Irma
- $70,000,000 to assist in Puerto Rico’s rebuilding after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
“We stand with all those who have been impacted by a natural disaster from the time of the emergency and until all repairs are completed,” said Acting Federal Highway Administrator Brandye L. Hendrickson. “The funding announced today will serve the traveling public by reimbursing local communities that have made repairs to damaged critical surface transportation infrastructure.”
