Background

The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 gave the states more flexibility in determining transportation solutions and required the development of a Statewide Transportation Improvement Program. The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users continues this flexibility.

 

MnDOT responded by decentralizing the program decision-making process to a more regional level (i.e., the districts). The Area Transportation Partnerships were established by each district to facilitate broader input to the project selection process. ATP-4 covers the 12 counties of Becker, Big Stone, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Mahnomen, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Swift, Traverse and Wilkin.
