Tuesday, February 12, 2013 - 7:05pm

U.S. Sen. David Vitter announced today that the U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded a $24,124,570 grant to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development to repair federal-aid highways affected by Hurricane Isaac.

“Louisiana’s roads and highways have suffered significant damage from Hurricane Isaac,” Vitter said. “This grant will begin the process to rebuild or repair that infrastructure.”

The grant is funded through the Federal Highway Administration Emergency Relief program and will be used to fund emergency repair work to help restore roads and highways to their original condition. Vitter sent a letter to President Obama in support of Louisiana’s formal emergency declaration.
