BONDING BILL

Latest Headlines
Delays in addressing matching funds for the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), and a bonding bill to address transportation, transit and infrastructure projects will result in higher costs, disjointed planning and economic losses.
The current framework for the bonding proposal would put $1 billion toward state agency projects with an emphasis on preserving existing assets. Local projects would get $400 million. But with just hours before a deadline to pass any bills, no proposal had fully materialized.
Bids are set to go out for tunnel construction under U.S. Hwy. 71. This is part of phase 1 of the Itasca-Heartland Connection Trail, a multi-purpose, paved trail between Itasca State Park and the Heartland Trail.
