50-year Vision for Transportation in Minnesota

Principal Investigator(s):

Jim Grothaus, Former Sr Dir, Tech Assist, Center for Transportation Studies

Project summary:

The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) team will assist MnDOT in the development a 50-year vision for transportation in Minnesota, which will inform the next Statewide Multimodal Plan and subsequent modal system and investment plans. CTS will assist MnDOT in engaging MnDOT districts, modal and specialty offices, the public, and other stakeholders to create a vision statement and associated guiding principles, objectives, strategies, and policies.

To assist MnDOT in developing a 50-year vision, CTS will prepare a public participation communication and outreach plan; develop an online participation tool and support web-based engagement efforts; plan and deliver advisory group workshops, public workshops, and a steering committee's workshop; conduct outreach to nontraditional groups; and develop topic-based vision summaries and video clips that will highlight trends/topics to consider in planning efforts.
