Red Wing Project Included with Passage of the INVEST in America Act

(July 2, 2021, Red Wing, Minn.) – On Thursday, July 1, 2021, the US House of Representatives passed the INVEST in America Act, reauthorizing the surface transportation and water infrastructure bill.

With the assistance and work of our Congresswoman, Angie Craig, the US House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee included $3.124 million in federal funding for Red Wing’s Levee Road Realignment Project in the appropriation Bill. The roadway realignment project is a component of the Upper Harbor - Bay Point Renewal project. 

The Upper Harbor - Bay Point Renewal project is a continuation of the Old West Main – Pedestrian Bicycle Bridge project currently under construction. The Phase II project components include Levee Road realignment, enhanced grain truck fleeting/overflow public parking, Bay Point Park/Pedestrian-Bicycle Bridge landing enhancements, wetlands rehabilitated, Upper Harbor Bulkheads rehabilitated, and the establishment of a riverfront Railroad Quiet Zone. 

“We are very grateful for Congresswoman Craig’s work and support in helping Red Wing fund this infrastructure project. This is our Red Wing 2040 Community Plan coming to life. Riverfront redevelopment has been a priority community project for over two decades,” said Becky Norton, City Council President. “We know that this is just one step in a much larger process,” she continued.

“The project helps us continue the ongoing work and effort to revitalize underutilized public lands and brown fields on the riverfront. It also increases the efficiency of the staging and fleeting capabilities for truck drivers delivering locally grown corn and soybeans to Red Wing Grain for export,” commented Jay Owens, the City’s Engineering Director.
