Westport News » The city needs about $11.6 billion to bring key parts of its infrastructure into “this century,” said city official Katie Dignan. That means repairing the roads, the infrastructure under them — sewer, water and drainage — as well as other parts of the drainage system that empties the city of water when it rains. Dignan said the city has about $2 billion available, some from FEMA to mitigate Hurricane Katrina damage and some from other sources.
