BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's congressional delegation announced Monday that the state will get $5 million in emergency funding to help repair roads and bridges damaged by flooding.

The money comes from a U.S. Department of Transportation fund that covers repair costs after natural disasters or catastrophes.

The delegation said in a joint statement that rebuilding transportation infrastructure is an important step in the overall flood recovery.
