"Recognizing the significance transportation infrastructure has on the State’s economy and its importance to the citizens for mobility, the Mississippi Legislature established the Emergency Road and Bridge Repair Fund (ERBRF) during the 2018 Extraordinary Session. Based on the success of the program, Senate Bill 2825 of the 2021 Legislative Session earmarked $89 million of Highway Infrastructure Program funds received by MDOT pursuant to the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 for the Emergency Road & Bridge Repair Program. In accordance with rules and regulations established by the Department under the 2018 legislation, MDOT will administer the Emergency Road and Bridge Repair Fund for emergency repairs to public roads and bridges.
