Metro District

Eight counties in the Twin Cities metropolitan area comprise Metro District of the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The state's two largest cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul, represent slightly less than half of the state's total population. Between 2000 and 2030, growth in this area is expected to generate 15 million trips per day and 86 million vehicle-miles traveled per day, which is a 51 percent increase over the course of these years.


The MnDOT team in Metro District plans, designs, constructs and maintains the state and federal highway systems within district boundaries. We also manage the aid and assistance given to county and city systems that qualify for state and federal dollars. Metro District also provides transit, trail and rail transportation services.

Metro District serves Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties.
