- TED grants for 2013 Announced
Ribbon cutting ceremony for Windom (Dec. 2013)
The Transportation Economic Development Program is a joint effort of the Department of Transportation and the Department of Employment and Economic Development. The program’s purpose is to fund construction, reconstruction, and improvement of state and local transportation infrastructure in order to:
- create and preserve jobs
- improve the state’s economic competitiveness
- increase the tax base
- accelerate transportation improvements to enhance safety and mobility
- promote partnerships with the private sector
The program provides state funding to close financing gaps for transportation infrastructure improvement construction costs. These improvements will enhance the statewide transportation network while promoting economic growth through the preservation or expansion of an existing business--or development of a new business.
