NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded a $24.1 million grant to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development to fix highways affected by Hurricane Isaac.
Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter says the money will start the process of rebuilding or repairing infrastructure that suffered significant damaged after Isaac struck Louisiana Aug. 29.
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.
