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 updating Minnesota’s State Aviation System Plan. The SASP is part of MnDOT’s Family of Plans, which stem from the Minnesota GO 50-year Vision. Review the public outreach plan and view the events calendar.

MnDOT is seeking stakeholder feedback on a draft of the new project selection policy, required by Minnesota Laws 2017, First Special Session, Chapter 3, Section 124. Learn more about the new project selection policy.

MnDOT is undertaking the Advancing Transportation Equity initiative to better understand how the transportation system, services and decisions-making processes help or hinder the lives of people in underserved and underrepresented communities in Minnesota. Specifically, MnDOT wants to identify key actions that transportation agencies can take to make meaningful change. Follow the project.

News & Notes

Our work doesn't stop once a plan is updated. The Family of Plans is where MnDOT and our transportation partners communicate what we plan to do. We identify how we will invest, what strategies to implement and specific activities to complete in order to make progress towards the Minnesota GO Vision.
