[ST. PAUL, MN] – Today (Friday), Governor Tim Walz stood alongside Nicollet County first responders, bipartisan legislators, community leaders, and his neighbors from Mankato to announce a funding plan to complete the final expansion of Highway 14—the 12 miles of two-lane traffic between Nicollet and New Ulm.

The legislation would update state law to allow the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to apply for a federal Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan, administered through the Rural Project Initiative and Build America Bureau of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The loan application will ask the federal government for an estimated $36 million for Highway 14.

Governor Walz says his advocacy in this project spans back to his time in Congress and the death of his neighbor in Mankato.
