The Virginia Department of Transportation will receive $6.2 million in federal funding to help pay costs stemming from a severe winter storm in 2009.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced the funding Thursday in a news release.

The storm that occurred one week before Christmas left some parts of Virginia buried under two feet of snow.

VDOT's costs included snow removal and cleaning up timber and woody debris along roads.
