ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota has wrapped up its 2014 road construction season.

The state Department of Transportation says major bridge construction, highway lane additions and road resurfacing were among the 308 projects underway during the season.

MnDOT Commissioner Charlie Zelle says it was a busy construction year for the state.

The $1.1 billion construction program included 74 projects in the Twin Cities and 194 projects in Greater Minnesota. Another 40 projects helped improve safety at railroad crossings, and made improvements at runways and terminals at regional airports.
