About this project

Potential Delay

This project is part of a "Fixing America's Surface Transporation Act" from 2015 that provided Minnesota with additional funds to spend on highway projects.

Before project work can begin, MnDOT is required by statute to have authorization from the state legislature before it can spend the extra funds. That authorization has not gone through as of January 2017. Therefore this project may be delayed.

For complete details about the FAST Act and this delay, you may view the notification.
