NDDOT receives additional funding for roads



MINOT, N.D. – North Dakota is receiving funding from the Federal Highway Administration’s annual August redistribution.

The state will receive more than $34 million.

This funding is an additional amount from funds that were allocated but not used.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation has received more than $107 million over the past five years from this annual redistribution.

The money will go towards improving the state’s roads and bridges.

NDDOT Director Bill Panos said this is the largest amount the state has seen.

“The additional federal funding enables us to move some state, city or county projects ahead sooner than originally planned,” said Panos.
