The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is committed to providing innovative solutions to Minnesota’s transportation needs that reduce construction impacts on citizens while improving quality of life. From the construction of the new Highway 61 Bridge in Hastings, to the development of multi-model transit options for Minnesotans, 2012 was a year of firsts for the agency. In Perham, over 200 jobs were created building a new freeway interchange on Highway 10, an important investment in our infrastructure made possible by the Transportation and Economic Development (TED) Program. Governor Dayton’s proposed budget continues funding for the TED Program, to help ensure Minnesota communities can continue to invest in infrastructure while creating jobs.
