Is your priority on the Mn/DOT list of unfunded needs?
Your Input Is Needed! Attached you will find a list of unfunded needs that was assembled by MnDOT in response to a request from a national organization called TRIP which is putting together a report on the top 100 transportation challenges in Minnesota. MnDOT has projected the unmet highway need on the state trunk highway system at $10 to $12 billion over the next 20 years. The list you have identifies projects totaling about $7 billion that are not funded but would make Minnesota’s transportation system an economically competitive/world class system. An additional $3 billion worth of projects has not yet been identified.
Please tell us – Are there any high profile projects on the trunk highway system that are missing on this list that should be included in the next 20 years to provide a more economically competitive highway system that would fit in the $10 to $12 billion unmet need amount? What do you see as the top needs on our state highway and transit system over the coming two decades?
Your feedback is important as we work to develop a common vision and message regarding the future of our state’s transportation system and work to convince policymakers of the need for additional investments.
