Construction Season Wraps up in Minnesota
The traffic headaches are over as the construction season has come to an end in Minnesota.
Construction crews are wrapping up work on the state’s 290 projects.
More notable to the Northland is the Bong Bridge project. The $6.7 million dollar project took two years to complete. According to MNDot, it was the most significant maintenance done on the bridge since it opened in 1984.
Many of the projects were funded through the $330 million Corridors of Commerce Program. They are part of a special multi-year effort funding projects to improve roadways with significant freight and commercial use.
“It was a busy, but successful year for road construction around the state. While no one likes the inconvenience that sometimes comes with repairing our roads and bridges, motorists now have safer, smoother roads to drive on,” said MnDOT Commissioner Charlie Zelle.
