APO To Pitch Projects To Congressional Lawmakers

WJON NewsST. CLOUD — St. Cloud Area Planning Organization delegates will head to Washington D.C. tomorrow to meet with our members of Congress.

APO Executive Director Scott Mareck says they want to get lawmakers up-to-speed on our transportation projects that need funding.

Mareck says they also want to impress upon them the importance of passing a transportation funding bill. He says the bill is needed to guarantee states and counties the federal backing to approve projects.

Mareck says their top priority is extending Benton County Road 29 down to Highway 23 and out to the St. Cloud Regional Airport. He says it is a shovel-ready project and has been for a few years now.

Other projects include additional money for a Highway 15/33rd Street South interchange and a Metro Bus compressed natural gas fueling station for a new fleet of buses.

Best of WJON
