Recognizing the significance transportation infrastructure has on the State’s economy and its importance to the citizens for mobility, the Mississippi Legislature established the Emergency Road and Bridge Repair Fund (ERBRF) during the 2018 Extraordinary Session to revitalize public roads and bridges across the state. In addition to establishing the ERBRF, the Legislature also provided the necessary authority to initially fund the program up to $250 million.
MDOT anticipates the bond proceeds will be deposited into the ERBR Fund by the first part of February. MDOT will send each awarded agency a notice of award amount and next steps leading to the distribution of funds. We anticipate the letters being mailed the first part of February. Accompanying this notice will be a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the awarded agency and the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Information on the content of the MOA can be found on the ERBRF website at www.gomdot.com/ERBRF. Each agency will be responsible for signing the MOA and returning it to MDOT. Once the MOA has been fully executed, MDOT will then distribute funds to the awarded agency.For any additional questions, please contact MDOT at firstname.lastname@example.org.
