Delaware Receives Nearly $33 Million in FHWA Redistribution

Governor John Carney | Kent County | News | Sussex County | Date Posted: Wednesday, September 5, 2018



The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) annual August redistribution has resulted in Delaware receiving an additional $32,995,605 in federal funding for infrastructure projects. The redistribution dollars represent federal transportation improvement funds that were allocated, but not used by other states. Last year, Delaware received $20,049,671.

“Any time we can add more funding for infrastructure investment in our state is great news. Over the past two years, Delaware has received more than $52 million in federal funding from the redistribution process to advance work on needed infrastructure projects that will have wide-ranging benefits,” said Governor John Carney.

“DelDOT works hard each year to identify projects that are eligible for these dollars and we are appreciative of the FHWA redistribution that allows us to move work forward sooner than previously planned,” said Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan.

Each summer, FHWA redistributes unused funding for infrastructure programs to projects that are able to utilize the funding before the end of the federal fiscal year. DelDOT will obligate these additional funds for the projects below no later than September 30, 2018:

US 40 & SR 896 Improvements
I-95 / SR 896 Interchange Improvements
Road A / SR7 Improvements
• US 13 – Seaford Paving and Rehabilitation
• US 113 – Georgetown Paving and Rehabilitation
