Congresswoman McCollum calls Commissioner Kriesel an excellent partner and important transportation leader

Washington, DC – This week, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) met with Washington County Commissioner Gary Kriesel, Washington County Engineer Wayne Sandberg, and other local officials to discuss the latest developments on transportation, including the Gateway Corridor which will connect downtown St. Paul and Washington County along the I-94 corridor.

“Commissioner Gary Kriesel is an important transportation leader in the East Metro. We have been working together for several years to secure federal funding for the Gateway Corridor and other key transportation investments in Washington County.  We share a commitment to increased economic development as well as ensuring commuters have good choices. Commissioner Kriesel is a champion for the Gateway Corridor and an excellent partner for me as we work together to meet the needs of the families and businesses in Washington County.”
