The Minnesota State Rail Plan is MnDOT’s modal plan for the state’s freight and passenger rail system. Its primary purpose is to establish guidance and priorities for the state transportation decisions—ensuring that efficient, competitive services are available to rail customers and that freight access to local and global markets is enhanced.
In alignment with
Minnesota GO, the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan, the Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan and other documents, the Plan will provide an overall framework for effective use of the state’s freight and passenger rail network and its future development.
