Planning

MnDOT is currently updating the Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan (MnSHIP). It will be available for review in September 2013. MnSHIP is a fiscally constrained 20-year capital investment plan that guides MnDOT’s investment decisions for the state highway system. The 50-year Minnesota GO vision and MnDOT’s Statewide Multimodal Plan influence MnSHIP’s priorities. Check back in September for more information or visit the MnSHIP webpage.

Minnesota GO: A transportation vision for generations

Minnesota Go

Minnesota’s multimodal transportation system maximizes the health of people, the environment and our economy. The system:

  • Connects Minnesota’s primary assets—the people, natural resources and businesses within the state—to each other and to markets and resources outside the state and country
  • Provides safe, convenient, efficient and effective movement of people and goods
  • Is flexible and nimble enough to adapt to changes in society, technology, the environment and the economy

Minnesota GO is a collaborative vision that extends to all public and private transportation partners across the state as well as to different transportation modes (highways, transit, rail, bikes, pedestrians, freight and aviation).

Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan

Minnesota Go: Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan

This multimodal plan provides the framework for MnDOT’s family of plans. It establishes guidance and priorities for state transportation decisions, which informs the specific plans for each mode and the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) which identifies specific projects and funding. To keep pace with changing priorities, opportunities, and challenges, the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan and the modal plans are updated every 4 to 6 years while the STIP is updated annually.
