Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan

The 21 trends that are being analyzed as part of the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan (SMTP) update process were grouped into five broad categories of change – population, economy, environment, technology and behavior. Participants were given two stickers and asked to vote on which changes were more important for MnDOT to focus on as we plan for the future; which areas are more important to direct our decision making.

Nearly 5,000 participants gave us their feedback. Here's what they said:

Environment
3,404 people
Population
1,915 people
Economy
1,822 people
Behavior
1,552 people
Technology
1,428 people

MINNESOTA STATE HIGHWAY INVESTMENT PLAN

State fair goers helped us evaluate 13 Minnesota highway investment categories, 11 of which are being considered for trade-off as part of the 20-year State Highway Investment Plan. Participants were given three stickers and asked to vote on which categories (we grouped them into eight broader cateories) they would like to see MnDOT invest in as part of the state highway system. They could place the stickers in one, two or three different categories.

More than 5,400 participants gave us their feedback. Here's what they said:
