    MONTPELIER - The U.S. Department of Transportation is providing Vermont $1 million to help the state recover from a series of spring and summer floods that damaged roads across the state.

    The Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief Program provides funds for the repair or reconstruction of some federal roads and bridges damaged by natural disasters or catastrophic events.

    The three members of Vermont's congressional delegation say the money is a much-needed infusion of federal funds to help towns throughout Vermont repair roads.

    The storms began in May and lasted until early July. There were about 30 separate road segments closed by storm damage.

    Significant damage was reported in nine counties.

    Parts of the state were declared a federal disaster area following the May and early June floods. Another application is pending.
