UNDATED -- The 2014 state legislature has given Minnesota road projects a financial shot-in-the-arm.

Minnesota's "Corridors of Commerce" program gets started with a $306,000,000 pot of money to improve Minnesota's road infrastructure.

Five projects will get underway this summer including a $28,300,000 project to expand I-94 between Rogers and St. Michael.

Also included in the list of 10 projects to be funded by the program is $1.5-million for environmental work on the future expansion of Highway 23 from New London to Paynesville and from Paynesville to Richmond.

The legislature created the Corridors of Commerce program in 2013 and initially set aside $300,000,000 for the first round of work.

Some other projects on the list are near Owatonna, Detroit Lakes and Deer River.
