$60 Million Requested for Francis Scott Key Bridge Response

Francis Scott Key Bridge | I-95 Exit Guide

The Maryland Department of Transportation has requested an initial emergency relief funding of $60 million to pay for initial mobilization, operations and debris recovery from the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore.

The request to the Federal Highway Administration, is needed for the state to proceed as quickly and safely as possible with debris removal, demolition, traffic operations and other emergency needs related to the March 26 bridge collapse. The state’s request is supplemental to funding provided by other federal partners to provide complementary work for the emergency response.

The request letter from Maryland Transportation Secretary Paul J. Wiedefeld says the state, in concert with federal and local partners, is continuing to conduct damage assessments, emergency operations and recovery efforts throughout the disaster area, and seeks federal assistance in response to “an emergency of this magnitude.”

Recovery is vital to reopen the shipping channel and address the needs of the region’s transportation system. The highway link provided by the Francis Scott Key Bridge and the Port of Baltimore are critical to Maryland’s economy and to national and international supply chains.

The emergency relief request is not related to bridge reconstruction efforts. Maryland is working to develop the preliminary scope and engineering estimate of future financial needs.
