Minnesota DOT Plans 308 Construction Projects in 2014

Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Charles Zelle called the state’s $1.1 billion effort this year an “amazingly robust construction program,” but the list of 308 projects will probably be the next-to-last of its size, unless state and federal spigots free up more highway dollars.

Seventy-four of the projects are in the Twin Cities metro area. 

Some project highlights:

  • New MnPASS carpool lanes on I-35 north of St. Paul
  • A new bridge over I-35 at Larpenteur Ave.
  • A new bridge over the St. Croix River in Oak Park Heights
  • Ongoing replacement of the Lafayette/U.S. 52 Bridge and Cayuga interchange in St. Paul
  • Resurfacing Minnesota 1 in Ely
  • Median and noise wall construction along U.S. 10 and County Road 96 in Arden Hills
  • Resurfacing U.S. 61 in White Bear
