Colorado is receiving the largest share of Emergency Relief (ER) funding out of 40 states from a federal award announced on Thursday, April 6.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)'s ER program helps repair highways and bridges after natural disasters or catastrophic failures.

U.S. Transportation Secreatry Elaine L. Chao approved the $768.2M award last week. Colorado will receive $124M in reimbursements for repairs to roads damaged during the 2013 floods and for a section of I-70 in Glenwood Springs damaged by a rock slide in 2016.
