ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Highway Administration has been awarded more than $6.8 million in federal funds to repair roads and bridges damaged during Tropical Storm Lee last summer.

The money, announced Wednesday, is coming from the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program. Most of the money will be used on three projects:

–$3.1 million to replace the washed-out MD 234 Bridge over Allens Fresh Run in Charles County.

–$1.1 million for pavement and drainage repairs along US 301 near MD 6 in La Plata.

–$1 million to repair the southbound MD 2 ramp to westbound MD 100 in Anne Arundel County.

    It pays to be a Blue State. Thank you Mr. President for looking after Maryland.

    What are you talking about blue? The president had nothing to do with those funds. 6.8 mil is nothing in a highway contract & all of these projects have been going for a while now & nearly complete on state funds anyway. Yes it helps, but what about the 20 mil bay bridge surplus before the toll increase?

      I am only talking about Fed money that continues to roll our way. Something we did not receive from Bush and his cronies. Now you raise a good point on the bridge tolls. I smell fraud on that.
