Here’s an excellent way to make your voice heard in the future of our state’s waterways. MNDOT is accepting public comment for their first State Ports And Waterways Plan through December 27.

Four ports on Lake Superior and five ports on 222 miles of the Mississippi River now provide essential transportation connections and access to national and international markets. The plan identifies opportunities, challenges and strategies to improve freight movement along this system and establish consistent federal and state funding sources.

This past summer, MNDOT presented the plan in Duluth, Winona, and St. Paul through a series of open house meetings.  In order to gain additional input, the public comment timetable has been left open through December 27.

For more information about the Ports and Waterways Plan or to make comments, contact Matthew Pahs, MNDOT Freight Planner, at 651-366-3694 or Updated information will be posted at
