Flooding Road Repairs Coming To Eastern KY

Congressman Hal Rogers announced Monday that federal funding will be released to fast-track repairs to federal highways and roads on federal lands that were damaged by flooding in February.The $2 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Emergency Relief program comes days after Rogers met with local leaders along the Cumberland River to discuss needs in each county.”This emergency funding is a great first step to help rebuild roads that were washed away or dessimated by landslides across the state, and specifically here in Southern and Eastern Kentucky where damages far outweigh resources to make quick repairs,” says Congressman Rogers.
