Lt. Gov. Tina Smith unveils road project grants, pushes for transportation funding


Lt. Gov. Tina Smith used a notoriously traffic-snarled section of Interstate 494 in Bloomington to announce $32 million in grants for 11 road projects, while also pushing for a big transportation package during the upcoming legislative session.

“These are great projects, but they don’t come close to meeting our need for a sustainable, comprehensive solution to Minnesota’s transportation challenges,” said Smith, who was joined by Gene Winstead, the Republican mayor of Bloomington and other state and local officials at an afternoon news conference.
