$17 Million to Fix Flood-Damaged Roads Secured by Tester

$17,937,061 Grant to Benefit 12 Counties Affected by Last Spring’s Historic Flooding

(U.S. Senate) - As part of his ongoing efforts to help Montana recover from last spring's historic flooding, U.S. Senator Jon Tester helped secure a grant for the Montana Department of Transportation to help fix roads damaged in those floods.

The grant, worth $17,937,061, was awarded by the Federal Highway Administration and will fund the repair and reconstruction of flood-damaged highways and roads across the state.

"Last year's flooding did real damage to Montana's roads and infrastructure," Tester said. "These resources will help boost jobs and repair the damage-making travel safer and keeping our communities open for business."

Tester wrote letters to FEMA Administrator Brock Long, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, and former Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke urging them to address the flooding last spring.

Tester secured grants for projects in the following counties:

  • Big Horn - I-90 culvert replacement
  • Carbon - US 310 bridge scour repair 
  • Granite - I-90 erosion repair and bank stabilization
  • Hill - US 2 erosion repair and bank stabilization, and S 448 culvert replacement
  • Jefferson - I-15 culvert replacement
  • Lewis & Clark - MT 21 bridge repairs and replacements, and MT 200 culvert repair
  • Missoula - Old MT 200 erosion repair and bank stabilization
  • Musselshell - River erosion repair and bank stabilization
  • Powell - MT 83 slide repair
  • Ravalli - Skalkaho road repair and slide correction
  • Sanders - Blue Slide road repair and slope stabilization 
  • Toole - Bootlegger trail repair and reconstruction
