What is Area Transportation Partnership (ATP)?

MnDOT created ATP to emphasize greater public involvement in preparation of transportation plans and programs.

There are eight ATPs in Minnesota (one for each Mn/DOT District area).

 

Every year, the ATPs develop an Area Transportation Improvement Program (ATIP) which cover a minimum four-year period. ATIPs include all projects seeking federal aid highway, state trunk highway, and federal transit sources of funding.

 

The ATP 7 is working to meet the goals of new federal transportation law - MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century).To distribute the funds a Statewide Performance Program was created to allow Minnesota to meet performance targets on the National Highway System - a key focus of MAP-21.


New funding programs in MAP-21 include:
