Seeking Comments on Proposed 2021 Transportation Projects

We’re working to line up funding for Duluth-Area projects in 2021

Federally-funded transportation projects can be big, expensive, and time-sensitive — which means they need to be planned in advance.  In fact, we’re working now to line up funding for Duluth-area projects in 2021.

The following projects have been proposed by eligible Duluth-area jurisdictions for construction in the year 2021.  They will be submitted for review and approval by the MIC Policy Board and the Northeast MN Area Transportation Partnership for inclusion in the Draft 2018-2021 TIP, and we are seeking public input or comment by March 15:
