Mn/DOT announces Greater Minnesota interchange projects

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Transportation Commissioner Tom Sorel today announced $30 million in highway interchange projects in Greater Minnesota that will promote economic development, increase employment, relieve congestion and promote safety.

 

“Making improvements to these key interchanges demonstrate strategic transportation investments that help improve our economy and also increase safety and mobility,” Commissioner Sorel said. “We have worked closely with Mn/DOT district staff, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and local partners to select these projects.”

 

The selected Greater Minnesota interchange improvement projects funded by bonds are:

 

These projects have additional funds from other sources committed to them.

 

Mn/DOT received 13 applications requesting $154 million, greatly exceeding the available $30 million. In general, Sorel said, the applications were very competitive.

 

Twin Cities metro area interchange improvement projects, also funded by bonds, are expected to be approved by fall 2009.
