ST. PAUL, MN—The Minnesota House of Representatives approved the Omnibus Transportation Finance and Policy bill this afternoon on a vote of 112-21. The bill included $30 million in funding for a lane expansion on U.S. Highway 10 in Wadena County. Rep. John Poston, R-Lake Shore, issued the following statement after the vote.
“Today is a great day for folks in our area that depend on Highway 10 to get to work, deliver goods and services, or are passing through our community on their way to the cabin,” said Rep. Poston. “This is a project that I have been working hard to secure funding for and I am grateful that we were able to get the job done. I look forward to construction starting sometime soon.”
