The federal government is helping Virginia pay for roads and bridges that were damaged during Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced Virginia will get $19 million.  About $12.6 million of that will go toward destruction from Irene and $6.5 million will fix roads hurt by Tropical Storm Lee.

In all, $1.6 billion from the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program went to repair roads and bridges after hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters.
