WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today announced the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will grant the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development $2,951,046 for repairs to roadways damaged by Hurricane Laura and Super Storm Marco last year. The funding will go towards stabilizing and repairing roadway embankments, rebuilding damaged roadways and bridges, and repairing destroyed road signs. Repairs will be made to roadways in five parishes: including Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jefferson Davis.
“More than a year later, we still see many of the scars left by Hurricane Laura when driving through our state,” said Dr. Cassidy. “This funding will help heal many of those scars and rebuild our damaged roadways.”
