Inclusion of Roadway Improvement Funding in State Bonding Bill


The need for road improvements near the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, prompted a group of Bloomington officials, landowners and legislators to contact Larkin Hoffman for support. The Larkin Hoffman regulatory team, led by Bill Griffith, Jerry Seck and Julie Perrus, helped to push for inclusion of the roadway improvements in the annual state bonding bill. Despite the recent state shutdown, budget impasse and special session of the legislature, the project won $15.45 million of funding, representing about one-third of the project cost.
