Ricardo Rossello said April 9, that an initial $80 million in local funds will target areas in critical condition, which represent up to eight percent of all roads across the island. He said results will be noticeable in six months and repairs will involve more than 780 mi. of roads.

Rossello said $250 million of the total is coming from the federal government.
