Heavy rains this year have done everything from flood roads to delay progress on one of the area’s most anticipated tollway openings, but Houston is receiving relatively little in terms of infrastructure relief.
The Federal Highway Administration last week announced $410 million was headed to states to help repair and recover damaged roads. The money is handed out annually as part of emergency allocations, and covers storms from 2015, as well as cleanup from previous years where claims are still being settled. Money is used primarily to rebuild or repair roads and bridges.
