Please, please please be something in there for Hwy 5. It needs serious help from Hwy 41 to 212.

Horrah! More work for the engineers designing / creating the fixes for them, for the construction workers building them, and improvement in the drive for those of us who will utilize them.

This was all planned before. Not really sure how this is breaking news. If anything, the news is the projects which *were* slated for the construction season but are on hold due to limited resources.

But what about all the work that needs to be done on out-state highways?

Governor Dayton has absolutly no appreciable understanding of how much (or how little) money is needed for infrastructure. I think the majority in both the house/senate, many of whom encompass the vast majority of the physical size of Minnesota, have a far better idea. The thing that concerns me the most with Dayton as governor is that inspite his disconnect from the mundane life most live over his 30+ years living in the perverbial politician bubble, he none-the-less maintains that ALL areas of government consistently need spending increases.

they'd have more money if they would stop central corridor construction and also use 100% of motor vehicle sales tax for roads. only 40% is used per constitutional amendment passed in 2006.
