MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Senator Amy Klobuchar met Monday in Minneapolis with the newly-confirmed U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

They discussed Minnesota’s transportation needs and investing federal money into new light rail and state highway projects.

“A strong transportation system insures that a working mom can spend less time in traffic and more time with her kids,” Foxx said. “A strong transportation system means that American businesses can ship their products across the country and across the world.”

Foxx said building the new 35W bridge in just 13 months was an example to the rest of the country of what can be done.
