Councillor Martin Mancey, Hull City Council's portfolio holder for transport, has recently warned that buses will be banned from using the flyover if urgent repairs aren't carried out soon.
Among the other projects to benefit is the A614 Airmyn Road in the East Riding. The project has received £1m towards the £1.581m scheme to go towards the construction of a new five-arm roundabout at the staggered crossroad between the A614 Airmyn Road and Glews Garage in Goole.
Work is due to start in October, this year, and be completed by April 2014.
Transport secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, said: "Tackling bottlenecks on the highway network will help get the country moving and the economy growing.
"I want to see this work underway and shovels in the ground as soon as possible, so today I am announcing £25m to fast track the first 10 schemes."
