BLOOMINGTON — Minnesotans are being offered the chance to help determine a vision for the state’s transportation system for the next 50 years when the Minnesota Department of Transportation hosts a workshop Tuesday at the Mall of America.

MnDOT Commissioner Tom Sorel says Minnesota’s current financial challenges and aging infrastructure make establishing a vision even more important. He says Tuesday’s event is one of a series of workshops giving Minnesotans opportunities to communicate their expectations for transportation today and for the next generation.

The process is meant to help the agency ensure that future transportation planning efforts better align with Minnesotans’ expectations.
