Minnesota Department of Transportation to host “Let’s Talk Transportation!” virtual event for Southwest and West Central Minnesota on June 8.


DETROIT LAKES — The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be hosting a virtual event on June 8 to share MnDOT’s plans for southwest and west central Minnesota.

The “Let’s Talk Transportation!” virtual event, scheduled to run from 5:30 to 7 p.m., will test residents' knowledge of the state transportation system in a trivia competition, along with encouraging people to share their vision for the future, according to a news release from MnDOT.

The event is scheduled to talk about the state's aging infrastructure, climate change, economy and employment, equity, safety, and transportation options.

The virtual format and colorful commentary are being utilized in the hope to encourage people to tell their own stories about how transportation affects their lives.

Part of MnDOT’s public outreach for the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan is to receive public input from these meetings and others being held throughout Minnesota to help MnDOT better understand the state’s transportation needs.
