SIOUX FALLS, SD -
South Dakota is getting about $19.2 million from the federal government to help shore up roadways damaged by spring flooding last year.
The money is through the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief Program. About $1.6 billion is being doled out nationwide to help repair highways damaged by natural disasters.
FHWA Administrator Victor Mendez says that when disaster strikes, states and local governments can rely on the federal government to help out.
