DOT to fund California overpass repairs
May 15, 2007 10:12 AM
The Department of Transportation has announced an initial $2 million in federal emergency relief will be available to California to repair the MacArthur Maze overpass near the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge damaged April 29 when a petroleum tank trailer unit collided with a guard rail, overturned, and burned.
The $2 million is a first installment of funds and additional federal dollars are expected to follow once the full project cost is determined.
Through its emergency relief program, the Federal Highway Administration reimburses states for expenses associated with emergency situations. The projects paid for by the funds include rebuilding or replacing damaged bridges, highways, lighting, guardrails and signs, creating detours, and debris removal.
