Each year tens of millions of dollars in federal funds are invested into the transportation system in our area. Sustainable Choices 2045, the newly-released draft plan by the Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Interstate Council (MIC), serves as a blueprint for these investments over the next 25 years.
In order for area jurisdictions to obtain federal transportation funding, the MIC, this area’s federally-designated Metropolitan Planning Organization, must update its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) every five years and make it available for public review.
Written comments are being taken on the Draft plan through August 30.
To request a printed copy of the document, or to submit a written comment, contact Mike Wenholz (contact info below).
Members of the public are also invited and encouraged to drop in at one or both of the planned public meetings for more information and to review and comment on the document. The open house-style meetings are scheduled for Thursday, August 8, 2019 from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Duluth Folk School, 1917 W Superior St, Duluth, MN and Thursday, August 22, 2019 from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave, Superior, WI.
The Draft LRTP, along with all comments received, will be considered for final approval at the MIC Board meeting on October 16, 2019.
