MnDOT Announces 2011 Road Construction Projects
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced a whopping $900-million worth of construction projects this summer.
Here in District 3, which covers central Minnesota, most of the projects center around the major travel corridors.
Along Highway 10, a resurfacing project along a 4-and-a-half mile stretch near Little Falls will start this May and go through August. It's a nearly $10-million project.
MnDOT will also install temporary bypass lanes along Highway 10 for 2012 pavement replacement between Clear Lake and Big Lake. That's a $10.6-million project and will start in June.
Highway 23 will become four lanes between St. Cloud and Foley when that two-year, $28.5-million project is completed in October 2012. It starts this June.
MnDot is replacing the pedestrian bridge along Highway 23 and Wilson Avenue in St. Cloud.
Crews will resurface Highway 23 between Paynesville and Richmond in June and July.
Interstate 94 will be resurfaced between St. Augusta and St. Joseph starting in July and between Collegeville and Albany starting in August.
Another popular corridor for weekend travelers that will be resurfaced is Highway 24 between Clearwater and Clear Lake.
