Mn/DOT asks southwestern Minnesotans for input to 50-year transportation system vision

WILLMAR -- Southwestern Minnesotans will help determine the state's transportation system vision for the next 50 years when the Minnesota Department of Transportation hosts a workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Ridgewater College in Willmar.

This workshop is part of a series of eight workshops scattered across Minnesota. An online participation option is available today for those unable to attend their local workshop. Details at

Participants from all backgrounds will share ideas and thoughts during a series of small group discussions about the future of transportation. A 31-member steering committee will review feedback from the workshops, online discussions and related research. This will serve as the foundation for the recommended 50-year transportation vision statement and set of objectives.
