Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The $1.1 billion will go towards 308 projects this year to improve highways, bridges and other state transportation infrastructure.

"Hundreds of road and bridge improvements getting underway this spring and summer will support Minnesota's growing economy, improve our quality of life and create thousands of good–paying jobs all over our state," Governor Mark Dayton said.

Construction work will be done on 74 projects in the Twin Cities and 194 in Greater Minnesota. 40 projects will improve safety at railway crossings and at airport runways/terminals.
