ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The federal government has released $4.25 million to help repair flood-damaged roads in Minnesota.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said Thursday that the emergency relief funds would be available immediately from the Federal Highway Administration.

The money is in addition to an initial “quick release” payment to Minnesota of $750,000 announced last month.

Gov. Mark Dayton announced Wednesday that Minnesota would get up to $5 million in federal highway dollars to fix some flood-damaged roads.

Minnesota saw widespread flooding, mudslides and high winds in June.
