(Neb)-Nebraska Getting $68-M In Emergency Hwy Repair Funds
WASHINGTON, D.C. - US Senator Deb Fischer says the Federal Highway Administration has awarded Nebraska $68 million dollars as part of its Emergency Relief Program to repair roads damaged by flooding in March.
The state will also get another nearly $2 million to address infrastructure damaged from June flooding and other affected areas.
Fischer, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, offers her thanks to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao for granting Nebraska what she calls "critical emergency relief funding."
The Valentine-area rancher says the money will ensure that Nebraska has the funds it needs to restore roads, highways, and bridges damaged or destroyed by this year's catastrophic flooding .
In April, Nebraska received $25 million in Federal Highway Emergency Relief "quick release" funding to assist with repairs to infrastructure damaged by flooding.
