OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The U.S. Department of Transportation is making $1 million available to Oklahoma to repair roads that are damaged because of recent storms

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced Wednesday that the funding is the first step toward repair the rain and flood-damaged roads. The money comes from the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief fund.

The emergency funds will be used for landslide damage to three major highways in the state - US-271 south of Clayton, Oklahoma Highway 1 in Le Flore County, and Oklahoma Highway 82 in Haskell County.

State officials say assessments continue on the damage as waters recede in the state’s 77 counties.
