About the Plan Update
The Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan (SMTP) and Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan (MnSHIP) are currently being updated. Both plans are required by state law to be completed in January of 2017. During the previous planning cycle, the SMTP was completed prior to MnSHIP and through separate outreach processes. Schedule constraints have made a combined update process a necessity.
Until the updated plans are released the current versions of both the SMTP and MnSHIP will remain valid.
Approximate timelines for the plan updates are shown below.
- Summer 2015: Background information and analysis
- Fall 2015 – Spring 2016: Public and stakeholder outreach
- Late Summer 2016: Draft plan documents released
- January 2017: Final approval and adoption of the updated plans by the Governor
