Officials say the work will support “thousands of construction jobs.”

Additionally, workers will improve infrastructure and safety on 51 multimodal projects, including airport, port, transit, and railroad projects outside of the road construction program, according to a MnDOT press release.

MnDOT has also released an interactive map showcasing where it plans to work this year. A full list of projects and their budget breakdowns can also be found below the map.

“Safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable transportation is vital to the quality of life and economic success of our state,” MnDOT Commissioner Margaret Anderson Kelliher said. “Although Minnesota’s transportation needs greatly outnumber available resources, this year’s construction program demonstrates MnDOT’s commitment to making smart investments in our system to better serve all people.”

Major projects in the works include Interstate 35W/I-94 in Minneapolis, which is expected to be completed in the fall. By the time it’s completed, 11 bridges will be rebuilt and four more will be repaired. It will also have new pavement, MnPASS lanes, a bus station, and better pedestrian bridges.
