MnDot Invites Input on Highway Plan 02 Jul 13

     The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public and
transportation stakeholders to review and comment on the draft
Minnesota 20-year State Highway Investment Plan through July 31. This
will be the final opportunity for the public to provide input on the
plan.
      MnSHIP connects the Minnesota GO 50-year vision and policies
established in the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to capital
improvements on the state highway system. MnSHIP 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.

MnSHIP can be accessed electronically at
www.dot.state.mn.us/planning/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.
