Capito Announces $3.1 Million for Flood Recovery

Funding will repair damage to roads in Marshall, Tyler counties

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, today announced $3,187,554 for the West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Public Assistance program. Funding will assist WVDOH with repairs to roads in Marshall and Tyler counties that were damaged as a result of flooding in February 2018. 

“Flooding and other natural disasters often damage the roads West Virginians depend on to travel safely and provide for their families,” Senator Capito said. “That’s why it’s so important for us to work with local communities to repair the damaged infrastructure they rely on. As chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I will continue to fight for funding that will help West Virginians and all Americans rebuild and move forward after natural disasters.” 

Individual awards listed below:

  • $1,685,691 – WVDOH for Tyler County
  • $1,501,863 – WVDOH for Marshall County
