A to B
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.
