We all have a stake in a strong transportation system. Every trip we take from point A to point B uses a road, a bridge, a rail line, a runway, a bike path or a waterway to connect us to our destinations.

Investing in A to B
The cost to complete needed improvements and make strategic investments in the transportation network exceeds our projected funding by an estimated $50 billion during the next 20 years. State highways and bridges alone need $12 billion.
By the numbers:
50 percent of state highway pavements are more than 50 years old
35 percent of state bridges are more than 50 years old
Minnesota is ranked 38th nationally for pavement condition
Minnesota is ranked 9th (tied) nationally for state highway bridges
The Twin Cities metro area will add 900,000 people by 2040
Our 50-year vision helps us see how transportation will connect people, natural resources and businesses to each other and to the world beyond. It's a great vision – but it will take a serious investment.
