Hoeven Announces More Than $4 Million DOT Grant to Repair Roads Damaged by Flooding

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $4.3 million to the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) to repair or reconstruct Federal-aid highways and roads damaged by flooding. Today’s funds were made available after President Trump approved the State of North Dakota’s request for a presidential major disaster declaration. The delegation supported the state’s request in a letter to the Administration.

In addition to aiding damage from flooding, the funding will be distributed to impacted routes in the areas of: 

  • Rice Lake.
  • West James River basin. 
  • Salt Lake basin.

“The presidential declaration for North Dakota made vital federal resources available, including this funding to help repair damaged roads,” said Hoeven. “Today’s funding benefits highway safety and transportation routes across the state and will enable critically-needed repairs.”
