The 2016 Statewide Freight System Plan was released by MAFC member, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, today.
The plan includes a snapshot of Minnesota’s current freight system as well as a description of the state’s economy, relevant trends, and current and future issues around freight. It also includes an action agenda which outlines how the system can keep pace with the significant growth in freight tonnage expected by 2040.
One of multiple transportation plans in support of the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan and the Minnesota GO vision for transportation in the state, this plan was developed with the help of the public-private Minnesota Freight Advisory Committee.
The plan and a video explaining the plan development are online at the MnDOT website.
