MnDOT seeking input on state highway safety plan
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites public comment on the draft Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan, a comprehensive policy plan that provides insight and direction on how to reduce traffic-related crashes.

The public comment period is open from June 9 until 4 p.m. on July 8.

A draft copy of the Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan will be posted at www.mndot.gov/safetyplan beginning June 9.

Alternate formats of the document can be made available upon request at any of MnDOT’s eight district offices (see www.mndot.gov for locations) or from the MnDOT Library in Central Office at 395 John Ireland Blvd. in St. Paul.

Developed in consultation with safety stakeholders from education, emergency medical and trauma services, enforcement, engineering and other disciplines, the Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan is based on data and trends that will affect traffic safety during the next several years.

Written comments on the draft Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan should be sent to safetyplan@state.mn.us no later than 4 p.m. on July 8, 2014. After the public comment period, MnDOT will make appropriate changes to the plan and submit it to the Federal Highway Administration.
