A rail line damaged during last year's flooding will get rebuilt.

That rail line is at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge.

The U.S. Department of Commerce awarded the port a $1 million grant to get the job done.

The rail line is at the port's marine terminal.

The money is just a small part of the $200 million dollars that the U.S. Congress is giving to help communities damaged by disasters last year.
