ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Another $5 million in federal assistance is bound for Minnesota to help repair roads and bridges damaged by severe flooding in June.

Gov. Mark Dayton's administration said Thursday that the emergency repair money is on top of $5 million previously released by the Federal Highway Administration.

The money will be managed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation but be used to expedite local repairs, particularly in areas where cash flow might otherwise be difficult.

Heavy, sustained rains washed out many roads and bridges in several parts of the state. Minnesota also has federal disaster aid requests pending with federal agencies that could help with repairs to other damaged infrastructure.
