Norman County Receives Close to $2 Million in LRIP for Pair of 2022 Paving Projects
Ada — Norman County was recently awarded nearly $2 million in Local Road Improvement Project funding from the state of Minnesota for the paving of a pair of roads that currently do or will soon play major roles in the county economy. The first of which is the County State Aid Highway 10 project, which will connect Highway 200 to Highway 39 from the Ada West to Perley sugar beet piling stations. Keith Berndt, Norman County Highway Engineer, says that road will finally be able to support the heavy agricultural traffic it sees on a regular basis.
The County Highway 10 paving project is estimated to cost $7 million and the county received $1.25 million in LRIP funding.
Norman County was also awarded $547,000 for the paving of 430th street in Waukon township. That road is being utilized Riverview Dairy and is currently being rebuilt by Riverview in preparation for the heavy use it will get once construction begins. Berndt says that LRIP project is a great example of a private-public partnership.
This year, the main road project in Norman County is the repaving on County Road 3 from Highway 9 to the Red River. That $3 million project begins on Monday.
