2003 Statewide Transportation Plan


A previous update of Minnesota’s Statewide Transportation Plan was last completed in 2003. Fiscally constrained district-level implementation plans were developed thereafter as were modal system plans for Freight, Bicycle Transportation, and for Aeronautics.


The Minnesota Statewide Transportation Plan is one of the first statewide transportation plans in the nation that is performance-based, and it is a recipient of the Federal Highway and Federal Transit Administrations’ joint Planning Excellence Award.


The 10 factors that were included in the 2003 Statewide Transportation Plan are shown in the table below.
