ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Gov. Mark Dayton’s administration is directing $300 million into ten highway construction projects meant to break up bottlenecks and improve freight movement around the state.

Dayton and Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle announced the projects Nov. 14. Competition for the money was fierce, with more than 400 proposals related to 100 unique road projects presented to the Department of Transportation.

Among the projects chosen are the addition of lanes on Interstate 94 between Rogers and St. Michael. In all, two of the projects are in the Twin Cities area and the rest are in greater Minnesota, but Zelle said the Twin Cities projects are more expensive.

Dayton and Zelle said the projects fulfill only a fraction of what’s needed to keep Minnesota’s transportation system competitive.
