BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Department of Transportation is developing the State Freight & Rail Plan and has launched the project website. This plan will assess all freight modes, identify needs and issues, provide recommendations, guide the advancement of the multimodal transportation system and serve as a road map for future investment.
The state’s freight and rail plans will be developed as one plan for the first time to create a comprehensive view of the movement of goods moving into, through and out of the state.
The website includes information and education about different modes of transportation in North Dakota, an Online Open House, as well as an interactive map where users can leave comments on particular highways, railroads or intersections in North Dakota.
We are excited to announce the launch of the project website for the State Freight & Rail Plan (SFRP)! Previously two separate plans, the SFRP will streamline the strategic planning process as we look at the way goods move in, out, and around our state https://t.co/3YwmKEyyi6 pic.twitter.com/SHlmLIhGYZ— Transportation Connection - NDDOT (@NDLRTP) August 26, 2021
NDDOT will use online engagement opportunities, surveys, videos, social media and direct conversations to collect information to help shape the future of multimodal freight systems in North Dakota.
The public can participate in a self-guided virtual meeting until Sept. 30. This meeting can be accessed through the project website at dot.nd.gov/projects/frp/.
The NDDOT will conduct public and stakeholder outreach throughout the next year and a half with the final plan being produced in late 2022.
