$1 million for Interstate 94 workWASHINGTON — The Dickinson area is one step closer to having $1 million for Interstate 94 reconstruction near the east Dickinson interchange.
WASHINGTON — The Dickinson area is one step closer to having $1 million for Interstate 94 reconstruction near the east Dickinson interchange.
The $1 million would be used to reconstruct more than 11 miles of westbound Interstate 94, creating about 75 temporary construction jobs, according to a press release issued Thursday.
Congressman Earl Pomeroy announced that he was able to secure the funds in the Fiscal Year 2011 House Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.
“I-94 is a critical east-west route for moving people and goods through the state,” he said in the release. “Keeping I-94 in good repair will benefit our state’s economy, especially our growing energy sector here in North Dakota.”
The bill was approved by the House Appropriations Committee and has been referred to the full House of Representatives for consideration.
