Minnesota Department of Transportation officials announced they expect to spend $1.1 billion on state road and bridge projects this year.
According to the department, there are 253 projects, some of which are already underway.
"These projects are critical investments in Minnesota's aging transportation system," Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle said in a statement. "We will repave roads, repair and paint bridges, replace culverts and rehabilitate structures such as the Stillwater Lift Bridge."
Additionally, there are 49 airport, port and railroad improvement projects slated for this year. The cost of those projects is estimated at $32 million.
The list includes four major construction projects in the metro area.
