Metro State Aid

Minnesota's economic strength and vitality depends on an effective transportation system. To support the state's system of streets, roads and bridges, MnDOT distributes funds for highway maintenance and construction to counties, cities and townships based on a formula determined by the Legislature.

Metro District State Aid is responsible for working closely with local levels of government to ensure the Metro area maintains a safe, effective and coordinated highway network.
