A bill to fund the expansion of Highway 14 to a four-lane from Nicollet to New Ulm passed Monday night by the legislature and awaits a signature from Governor Walz.

The bill passed in the Senate unanimously, and by a vote of 96-9 in the House after passing through the Senate finance committee.

About half of the funding would come from a $36 million federal loan with a 1% interest rate.  The Minnesota Department of Transportation has also applied for a federal grant that would fund the remainder of the $74 million project.  State officials promised to find the extra money to fund the 12-mile expansion if the state doesn’t get the federal grant.

Construction on the four-lane could begin as early as 2021.
