The department said in a news release Monday that its cost for helping clean up damage caused by tornadoes, severe storms, straight-line winds, flooding and landslides has totaled more than $500,000.
The state had said that 21 tornadoes touched down during severe storms that swept through 10 counties May 27 and May 28.
Transportation officials say the department's work to help reopen roadways closed by flooding or debris from storms is vital to helping residents recover from weather disasters.
Since 2015, severe weather emergencies have cost the department nearly $53 million.
