American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Funds to Speed Repairs on Refuge Roads

WASHINGTON - Road repairs in eight of America's national wildlife refuges can begin, thanks to $10 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced today.

"These roads are an important part of the national highway system," said Secretary LaHood. "The improvements made possible by these ARRA funds will create jobs and make these national treasures more accessible and safer for Americans to visit."

The $10 million is the full amount of ARRA funding dedicated to the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Refuge Roads Program. ARRA funds became available with President Barack Obama's authorization on March 3.

The projects to receive the ARRA funding are:

The refuges, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, provide critical habitat for birds and wildlife. The FHWA and the USFWS jointly administer over 4,800 miles of public roads that provide access to the National Wildlife Refuge System.
