Emergency Funds Provided for Missouri’s Flood Damaged Roads

Emergency Funds have been provided for Missouri’s flood damaged roads…

The Federal Highway Administrator recently announced the release of $1 million in federal emergency relief funds to MoDOT to help with repairs to the state’s highway system due to extreme flooding earlier this year. Bridges and roads throughout the state have been damaged from landslides, erosion and scouring, and many culverts have been washed out. In total, 76 of Missouri’s 114 counties received damage to state roads and bridges. The greatest immediate need is in the Northeast and Kansas City areas, and these immediate funds will be used to work on their high priority needs. MoDOT will continue to address the repairs statewide and will continue to pursue funding for the locations with major damage.
