County eyes $3 million in state road grants

December 26, 2013

Sometime in the next 30 days, Howard County officials are expected to formally apply for more than $3 million in state grants to begin the process of rehabilitating county roads.

Several county roads in this area have been adversely affected by the heavy influx of oilfield-related traffic and officials are looking to the state as a possible way to pick up at least part of the repair bill.

Commissioners this week held a public hearing on plans to participate in a grant program administered by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), which will disburse more than $200 million to counties whose road infrastructure had been significantly damaged as a result of the recent oil boom.

County Judge Mark Barr said Howard is eligible for between $3 million and $4 million in grant money, “so you can see that this is a pretty good deal for us.”
