What is Planning and Programming?

MnDOT’s Planning and Programming responsibilities consist of a range of activities. These include writing plans, conducting data analysis, reviewing performance outcomes, and managing the capital program.

Current Activities

MnDOT is currently updating three key transportation plans. The public is invited to review and comment on the plans, which will shape the future of transportation in the state and direct billions of dollars of investment during the next two years.

View drafts of the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan, 20-Year Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan, and Greater Minnesota Transit Investment Plan on the Minnesota GO homepage. Submit your feedback by October 14th!
