$5 Million In Emergency Road Repair Money Awarded To Minnesota

Posted Friday, August 8th 2014 @ 5am

SAINT PAUL — Five million federal dollars has been sent to St. Paul to help fix roads and bridges across the state that were damaged by flooding in June.  Governor Mark Dayton's office says that's on top of five-million-dollars previously released by the Federal Highway Administration.  The money will be managed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation but will be used to make local repairs, especially in smaller communities that may not be able to raise the needed money themselves.  Minnesota officials are still waiting to hear about whether other federal disaster aid requests that could help with repairs to other damaged infrastructure are approved.
