Public input will be incorporated in the District 4 Freight Plan. This plan will help MnDOT understand how freight businesses and local communities use the transportation system to identify investments to improve mobility for freight, like commercial trucks, trains, planes and pipelines.

Pedestrians, bicyclists, and cars share infrastructure with freight, so addressing freight needs and issues will help make Minnesota’s transportation system more safe, efficient, and well-maintained for all transportation users, according to MnDOT leaders.
