Minnesota is facing many changes.

Minnesota is facing many changes. These shifts—in demographics, technology, the environment, the economy, and travel behavior —will affect how we move. It is important we proactively plan to address these changes, so we can achieve our vision of a multimodal transportation system that maximizes the health of people, the environment and our economy.

That’s why, every four years, MnDOT writes a plan for the future of the state’s multimodal transportation network. The plan looks at all types of transportation. It evaluates the status of the transportation system, what’s changing, and how we’re going to move forward over the next twenty years. The update is so important to the success of the future system that it is required under both federal and state law.

From the fall of 2015 through the fall of 2016, MnDOT updated the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan. Thank you for helping us shape the future of Minnesota! Read the final plan
