{{featured_button_text}}

North Dakota's Department of Transportation is getting a $4.3 million grant from its federal counterpart to fix weather-damaged federal aid roads and highways.

The money is through the federal Department of Transportation's Emergency Relief program, U.S. Sens. Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven, R-N.D., announced Friday. It was awarded to the state after Gov. Doug Burgum issued an emergency declaration last fall due to flooding from rain and snowstorms, and President Donald Trump recently approved the state's request for a presidential disaster declaration

Eligible work includes emergency repairs needed to restore essential traffic, minimize the extent of damage or protect the remaining facilities, as well as permanent repairs necessary to restore a highway to its pre-disaster condition.
