The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced funding for $2 million in local transportation projects in Greater Minnesota.
Greater Minnesota includes all counties outside of the seven-county metro area.
The funding is available through Transportation Economic Development, a program for construction projects on the state highway system that will take place in 2023 and 2024.
Cities, counties, tribes, and other government entities can submit applications for the funding through September 2.
MnDOT’s TED Program is a grant program that helps meet the state’s transportation and economic development needs by creating and preserving well-paying jobs and leveraging private and local investment in transportation infrastructure. The TED program has provided nearly $130 million in grants to 55 projects throughout Minnesota since 2011.
