DOT to give 21 states emergency road money
- The U.S. Department of Transportation is pumping $333.9 million into emergency road repairs needed after natural disasters in 21 states.
- The money will enable state DOT's to pay for work on roads and bridges, such as a road that was inundated by a massive mudslide in the state of Washington.
- Some of the repairs will be from disasters dating from several years back.
The emergency repair money draws on a U.S. Treasury account. The announcement does not involve the $10.8 billion that Congress recently approved to prop up the national Highway Trust Fund.
