3 Years of Transportation Projects for Review


The Minnesota Department of Transportation is offering an opportunity for public review and comment on a draft State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for state fiscal years 2006-2007-2008 (July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2008).

With uncertainties regarding funding levels at both the state and national level, this draft has been developed using Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) apportionment levels. Projects include local road and bridge projects utilizing federal funds; transit capital investments; state highway road and bridge projects; enhancement projects; congestion mitigation and air quality projects; scenic byway projects; and other projects intending to utilize federal highway funds, federal transit funds, or state trunk highway funds. The proposed State Transportation Improvement Program is available for review at Department of Transportation District Offices.

Locally, interested persons are encouraged to contact District 7 Planning Office at 501 South Victory Drive, Mankato, MN 56001; telephone (507) 389-6351 or 1-800-657-3747.

Comments are encouraged and should identify the portion of the STIP addressed, reason for the comment, and any change proposed. Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m. on June 22, 2005.

Traveler information, including incident reports, is available by calling 511 or logging on to Know the Road. Dialup or log on.
