FHWA Provides Funding for Natural Disaster Road Repair

$729 million provided under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

 The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released $729 million to help 34 states and 3 territories repair roads and bridges damaged by recent natural disasters. This funding will help repair roads washed away by natural disasters, such as flooding and mudslides, bridges and highways rendered unusable by hurricanes, and critical infrastructure.

“Our transportation system was not designed to handle the climate impacts we are seeing in the 21st Century,” said FHWA Administrator Shailen Bhatt. “Since January 2022, FHWA has distributed over $1.3 billion in Emergency Relief dollars to help states make repairs because of climate-related events. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is providing new programs and funding opportunities to help our transportation system be more resilient to climate change and get people and goods where they need to go safely.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Bhatt to be discerning as he oversees the Federal Highway Administration.
  • For Secretary Pete Buttigieg to be led by God in his management of the Transportation Department.
