ST. CLOUD — The state government shutdown has made life difficult for officials at the Minnesota Department of Transportation who are trying to complete projects before winter.

We already told about some projects that have been pushed back to next year, but there are some that were impacted by the shutdown.

One of those is the Highway 25 project in Monticello. That will now be done October 12th rather than the original completion date of September 2nd.

MnDOT Project Manager Tim Paul says another project is the I-94 paving project from Albany to St. John’s which is getting a late start. He says if the construction firm can’t get it done before the snow flies they will suspend the remainder of the work until next spring.

Highway 10 work in Little Falls should be completed in October despite the work stoppage in July.
