Published 9:27am Friday, April 4, 2014

Several Mower County highway projects are among more than 300 Minnesota Department of Transportation projects scheduled for this year.

The $1.1 billion 2014 construction program of 308 projects includes work on 74 projects in the Twin Cities and 194 projects in Greater Minnesota. An additional 40 projects statewide will improve safety at railroad crossings, and make improvements on runways and terminals at regional airports. The work includes projects funded by the Corridors of Commerce program, a bonding effort aimed at improving roadways for freight travel.

“This program will provide vital upgrades to our transportation system,” said MnDOT Commissioner Charlie Zelle. “The Corridors of Commerce projects will ensure that roadways vital to business use will get needed improvements.”
