Minnesota’s Transportation System – 2040

We need your input!  We’re working to develop a plan for improving the transportation system all across the state.  We want to identify priority projects that our members believe need to be built by the year 2040. Some projects may be needed and are doable in the short-term – over the next 10 years – and some are more long-term projects.

Help us develop a map that shows Minnesotans the kind of multi-modal transportation system we could have by 2040 with additional revenue.

Sorel to Head Mn/DOT  

Governor-Elect Dayton has chosen Tom Sorel to continue as MnDOT Commissioner under the new administration.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with MnDOT on transportation issues heading into the next session.
