$2 Million in Emergency Relief Available for Roads and Bridges Damaged by Wildfires

The DOT announced the money is available after the wildfires in northern California

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx has announced $2 million in federal emergency relief funds is immediately available from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to help repair roads and bridges damaged by wildfires in northern California.

“Emergency relief funding will make immediate repairs possible throughout the area and reopen critical roads again,” said Secretary Foxx. “We want to ensure that everyone in this region of California has access to safe roads and safe bridges – and this funding will help ensure that travel can get back to normal as soon as possible.”

The fires initially started on September 12 near Middleton in Lake County and spread to Napa and Sonoma Counties.

“We want to make sure we restore vital travel links in the region as soon as possible,” said FHWA Administrator Gregory Nadeau.  “Peoples’ lives are greatly affected when the highways they rely upon for daily travel are destroyed.”

California will use the money to help repair damaged pavements, signs and guardrails and to re-stabilize slopes and embankments on certain highway sections.
