“Last year, floods tore up Louisiana roads. This funding will help make driving conditions safer for our communities.”

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced a $2.9 million grant from the Department of Transportation to repair roads across Louisiana.

“Last year, floods tore up Louisiana roads. This grant will help make driving conditions safer for our communities,” said Kennedy.

In February 2019, significant flooding damaged numerous federal roads around Louisiana. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will use the grant to fund road repairs in various parts of the state.
