Abbott says $25 Million coming from feds for TxDOT Harvey recovery


Gov. Greg Abbott has announced that the Texas Department of Transportation is receiving $25 million in federal funds to help rehabilitate the state’s transportation network in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The Federal Highway Administration made the funds available for all counties in the governor's disaster declaration.

Abbott said that the money will be used immediately for debris removal, cleanup, and repairs to infrastructure.

More than 1,500 TxDOT employees have been addressing the disaster that has affected almost 50 Texas counties. The historic flooding has downed traffic lights, damaged roadway signs and caused highway asphalt to buckle or be swept away in some areas. At last report, more than 530 roads remained flooded or closed.
