Minnesota Department of Transportation awards $18 million in grants for highway projects

The cities of Chaska, Dayton and Cloquet, and Washington and Scott counties received the grants, part of the state’s Transportation Economic Development program. The state money will help leverage additional funds from federal, local and private sources for construction worth $124 million, according to MnDOT.

MnDOT Commissioner Margaret Anderson Kelliher said in a statement the program “will help deliver infrastructure improvements that enhance business growth opportunities around Minnesota,” and create jobs, as well.
