The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public and transportation stakeholders to participate in developing the 20-year Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan (MnSHIP), beginning with a webinar Aug. 27.
MnSHIP connects the 50-year transportation vision and policies established in the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to capital improvements on the state highway system. A primary outcome of the plan is the establishment of priorities for spending projected capital revenue.
Other opportunities to participate include stakeholder engagement meetings in October, an interactive web tool, social media updates, and draft plan reviews in early 2013. Tentative district meeting dates are:
The highway plan will use a risk-based, performance planning process to guide and prioritize future capital improvements on Minnesota’s state highway system. The investments made on the highway network are multimodal. They include:
MnSHIP must consider a variety of factors, including state highway system needs that exceed projected revenue, recent federal legislation that requires MnDOT to prioritize improvements on major routes, state legislative requirements, technical expertise and public input, and feedback from the governor.
