ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced a list of city and county road projects in greater Minnesota that will get $75 million from the federal stimulus package.

Officials today plan to hand out the first contracts for road work funded by federal stimulus dollars.

MnDOT says the projects are in addition to the $180 million greater Minnesota state highway projects that Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced last month.

The 53 projects announced Thursday include resurfacing of Interstate 90 and County Road 46 in Freeborn County, new alignment of a four-lane road in Waite Park and replacement of a three-span bridge in Aitkin County.

MnDOT hasn't yet announced the specific state highway and local road and bridge projects that will be funded by stimulus money in the Twin Cities metro area.
