Email News Alerts

Wadena County received $650,000 for bridge and highway work out of President Barack Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill, according to Joel Ulring, the county's highway engineer.


"That is 100 percent federal funding," Ulring said. "So that was a very nice thing to hear."

$625,000 of the stimulus money will fund a bridge replacement on County State Aid Highway 2 over the Partridge River three-quarters of a mile west of CSAH 26 northeast of Aldrich.
