NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The U.S. Transportation Department will be giving more than $100 million to help with highway repairs.
More than $871 million was awarded to 39 different states. Tennessee will receive $110 million.
The funding will mostly be used on rebuilding projects from severe storms earlier this year.
Puerto Rico also received more than $200 million to recover from 2018 hurricanes.
For the Midstate, the bulk of the money will go towards repairing Interstate 24 from a landslide.
Earlier this year a section of the interstate was closed for more than a week to pick up debris.
The same storm system also caused multiple landslides in East Tennessee.
Most of the money - $108 million – will be used toward flooding and landslide projects across the state.
