MAPLE GROVE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota’s largest stimulus-funded road project got under way on Sept. 3.

The project will extend Highway 610 by 3 mi. (4.8 km) in the Twin Cities’ northwestern suburbs.

It’s getting $56 million from the federal economic recovery package.

Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez, U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Rep. Erik Paulsen will be on hand in Maple Grove for the start of construction.

The route was first proposed in the mid-1960s and has been incomplete since the first segments were built in the 1980s. The new construction will still leave Highway 610 short of an envisioned link with Interstate 94.
