KIMT NEWS 3 — Minnesotans are getting one last chance to voice their support for future roadway projects.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is currently holding public hearings on the 20-year State Highway Investment Plan, otherwise known as MnSHIP.

It helps set priorities for the state highway system with MnDOT’s expected revenue.

Leaders say this is typically one of the last sessions where they take comments before moving forward with the project.

“Today, at the public hearing, is a couple of days before the 31st,” MnSHIP Project Manager Ryan Wilson said. “But, this is typically probably when we get the bulk of our last comments. And, I imagine a few folks will still submit them though over the next two days.”

Folks have until Wednesday to submit their comments on the project.

Wilson says they will have those comments, review them, and hopefully release an adopted plan in the beginning of September.
