DOT Releases $1 Million for California Road, Bridge Repair

Yesterday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary E. Peters Announced the immediate release of $1 million in emergency relief funds to California to help pay for urgent repairs to roads and bridges damaged by wildfires.

"We're making this down payment because the last thing local officials should have to worry about is how to pay for needed road repairs," Peters said. "We're taking uncertainty and delay out of the equation when it comes to repairing the state's damaged highways."

Peters said the quick release of funds was intended to help California address repairs that need immediate attention, such as damaged or destroyed guardrails, signs or traffic signals, and to get essential sections of the highway system working again until the state completes a full assessment of the damage.

DOT's emergency relief program provides funds to states for the repair or reconstruction of federal-aid highways damaged by natural disasters or catastrophic events. The program typically works on a reimbursable basis.
