Mid Minnesota Development Commission is looking for your feedback regarding future transportation projects within the area!
The Area Transportation Improvement Program (ATIP) is a document listing District 8’s programmed projects over the next four years (District 8 2021 - 2024 DRAFT Area Transportation Improvement Program and MAP). The District 8 projects combined with the other District’s projects make up the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), which is a federally required document that includes all state and local transportation projects using federal funding. The STIP is developed on an annual basis and updated throughout the year to reflect significant changes in the program.
This is an opportunity to review and comment on the projects identified in the program. If you have comments or questions on the program or specific projects within the program, reach out to Kyle Ten Napel at MMDC or Lindsey Bruer of MnDOT:
