State officials today unveiled 60 transportation projects for greater Minnesota that will be paid for with money from the federal stimulus package.
The projects run as small as $66,000 for signal replacement in Bemidji to $18 million to fix up parts of state Highway 53 north of Duluth. Total estimated cost of the projects: $180 million.
Federal officials expect greater Minnesota projects to create about 5,000 jobs, Gov. Tim Pawlenty said this morning. A list of Twin Cities area projected paid for with stimulus dollars is expected in March.
