Cooperative agreements

Cooperative agreements


The Cooperative Agreements section provides MnDOT trunk highway construction funding through a competitive selection process to local agencies for roadway improvement projects. The program selects Cooperative Agreement projects that are initiated and administered by a local agency, involving a trunk highway, where MnDOT funds are utilized for part of the project to the mutual benefit of all partners. The program relies on the initiative of the local agencies and their commitment to making roadway improvements.

Local agencies should work with the new MnDOT Area Managers (PDF) between April and July to investigate potential projects for possible inclusion in the program. Project funding selection takes place in October and funding becomes available the following July.
