States will receive money to fix roads following natural disasters

Posted:

(AP)-- Some road repairs won't have to come out of state budgets anymore.

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced it will spend more than $1.5 billion to reimburse states for the cost of repairing road damage brought on by natural disasters.

For example, Iowa will receive $37.5 million to repair damage caused by the flooding of the Missouri River in May.
