MnDOT public hearing is today on 20-year state highway plan

ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Department of Transportation will have a public hearing from 4 to 5:30 p.m. today on the draft Minnesota 20-year State Highway Investment Plan.

This will be the final opportunity for the public to provide input on the plan. The hearing will be in Room G15 at the MnDOT Central Office, 395 John Ireland Blvd., in St. Paul.

The State Highway Investment Plan connects the Minnesota GO 50-year vision and policies established in the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to capital improvements on the state highway system. It establishes priorities for spending projected capital revenue, identifies planned investments during the next seven years based on these priorities, and details strategies to ensure the effective use of available resources.

The plan can be accessed electronically at ning/mnship/. It is also available for review in hard copy at the MnDOT Library, 395 John Ireland Blvd., in St. Paul, and at offices statewide.

The public also may participate via videoconference at MnDOT offices, including at the Willmar office at 2505 Transportation Road and at the Marshall office at 1800 East College Drive.

Those unable to attend in-person can participate in an online webinar. For details, visit:
