MnDOT to preview draft Minnesota 20-year State Highway Investment Plan in May and June; public comment period to follow in July
Statewide stakeholder meetings begin May 28; online webinars in June

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public and transportation stakeholders to learn about the upcoming draft of the Minnesota 20-year State Highway Investment Plan. MnSHIP connects the Minnesota GO 50-year Vision and policies established in the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to capital improvements on the state highway system. The plan establishes spending priorities for projected capital revenue. These priorities influence the selection of projects throughout the state.

MnDOT will conduct in-person meetings around the state in late May and early June. At the meetings, MnDOT will share what was heard at fall outreach, discuss how investment priorities were set, and share information and facilitate discussion related to the upcoming draft plan. Those unable to attend the in-person meetings are encouraged to learn more about the draft at one of two live webinars. Additional information can be found at
