Sandy: one year later

Transportation recovery continues moving forward with DOT support

In the year since Hurricane Sandy, we have worked closely with our state and federal partners to help restore transportation systems in affected states, while also working to ensure that new infrastructure is built to withstand future storms.

Rebuilding damaged roads, bridges, tunnels, and transit lines is no easy task. And this Department has worked hard to speed relief and recovery funds to the state and local agencies doing the heavy lifting. That lifting is the real work, and the men and women doing it deserve our thanks.

Hurricane Sandy provided a devastating reminder of how much we depend on our transportation systems.
