Statewide Freight System Plan

What is the Statewide Freight System Plan?

Minnesota’s Statewide Freight System Plan, currently under development, will provide a policy framework and strategies for MnDOT and other freight stakeholders to guide planning and investment in various transportation modes. Developed cooperatively with private and other public entities, the comprehensive Plan will also provide guidelines in project development and operational decisions, all in accordance with the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

When completed in May 2016, this updated Statewide Freight System Plan will also highlight best practices, strategies, and cooperative partnerships / associations, while also addressing other federal and Minnesota initiatives.
