2017-18 Statewide District Bicycle Plans

Following the development and adoption of the Statewide Bicycle System Plan, MnDOT is currently developing eight statewide district bicycle plans to help identify local bicycle routes on existing or planned facilities to develop in the future or to connect the corridors identified in the State Bicycle Route Network. The draft District Bicycle Plans are set to be released in early 2019.

Minnesota's newest bicycle route

In 2017 Minnesota designated a new U.S. Bicycle Route: USBR 41, the North Star Route, which travels from St. Paul to Grand Portage State Park. The 315-mile long route connects to USBR 41, the Mississippi River Trail. Printable and downloadable electronic/GPS maps are available for both routes.

Two Harbors Bike Route

MnDOT worked to complete preliminary engineering for a bicycle route through Two Harbors along Highway 61. The route is intended to address the needs of residents and visitors alike.
