Today, MNDOT announced an
ambitious summer construction season of more than 300 road projects, costing
about $1.1 billion.
Here's a quick rundown of
some the major ones in our area.
- More than $6.5 million worth
of cable barriers will be installed on 60 miles of I-94, between Barnesville
- On Highway 10, drivers may
encounter lane closures while crews replace the bridge over the Buffalo River
between April and August.
- And in the northern
valley, about 13 miles of Highway 2 will be repaired between Erskine and Highway
32 all summer long.
MNDOT leaders say the
amount of projects and spending are similar to last year's construction season.
"I always kind of
refer to that as building a Vikings Stadium all in one construction season,"
MNDOT Commissioner, Charlie Zelle said.
