MnDOT seeks input on 20-year state highway plan

The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public and transportation stakeholders to review and comment on the draft Minnesota 20-year State Highway Investment Plan through July 31. This will be the final opportunity for the public to provide input on the plan.

MnSHIP connects the Minnesota GO 50-year vision and policies established in the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to capital improvements on the state highway system. MnSHIP establishes priorities for spending projected capital revenue, identifies planned investments during the next seven years based on these priorities, and details strategies to ensure the effective use of available resources.

MnSHIP can be accessed electronically at It is also available for review in hard copy at the MnDOT Library, 395 John Ireland Blvd., in St. Paul, and at offices statewide.
