Minnesota's Transportation System


MnDOT completes the District 1 / NE Minnesota Manufacturers' Perspectives on Transportation Project

D1 Manufacturers' Study report cover page

With 567 bridges and 3,700 lane miles, MnDOT’s District 1 comprises nearly a quarter of Minnesota’s land area. This recently-completed report reflects the results of face-to-face interviews with 78 manufacturers and other businesses in northeast Minnesota, on topics such as 10-ton roads, passing lanes, passable bridges, construction and congestion. MnDOT District 1 and Central Office staff are analyzing and incorporating results, as feasible, into system improvement plans.
