• Irene road repairs get boost
    February 15,2013
     

    MONTPELIER ó Vermontís congressional delegation says the state is going to get another $18.25 million to continue repairing roads damaged by flooding from Tropical Storm Irene and spring flooding in 2011.

    The funding is part of $1.1 billion in new emergency relief funding approved by Congress. To get the federal funds Vermont will have to contribute about $4.26 million as a state match.

    The flooding in the spring of 2011 and Tropical Storm Irene damaged hundreds of miles of Vermont roadways and damaged or destroyed dozens of bridges.

    State officials have said many of the repairs done in the immediate aftermath of the storm were considered temporary fixes that would have to be revisited.
