FHWA Issues $500,000 in Emergency Relief Funds to Vermont

Vermont will receive $500,000 in federal funding to repair roads and bridges that have been damaged by heavy rain and flooding.

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced Nov. 20 that the Federal Highway Administration will make the “quick release” emergency relief funds available. The funds, which were requested by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), will be used to reimburse the agency and municipalities for repairs that were necessary to reopen essential federal-aid routes.
