On Jan. 3, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) and Gov. Tim Walz announced $17.4 million for eight construction projects to improve transportation infrastructure.

The projects are located in the Twin City Metro and Greater Minnesota areas.

“Investing in our transportation system helps strengthen communities, create jobs, and promote economic growth,” said Gov. Walz. “These projects will support a broad range of opportunities for business growth, ranging from business incubators to small businesses to meat processing plants, while improving the safety and efficiency of our transportation system.”

The funding comes from the state’s competitive Transportation Economic Development (TED) and Transportation Economic Development Infrastructure (TEDI) programs. The programs target transportation infrastructure projects that create economic development opportunities and jobs through a collaboration between MnDOT, the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), and local government and private sector partners.

“This round of Transportation Economic Development funding leverages local public and private funding to complete road projects that help create safe, vibrant communities, connect local businesses to their customers and supply chains, and connect people to jobs,” said MnDOT Commissioner Nancy Daubenberger. “The projects also improve local and regional safety, and demonstrate how a strong multi-modal transportation system supports healthy communities.”
