The purpose of the Trunk Highway 68 Corridor Coalition is to create an organization through which the members may jointly and cooperatively plan for and maximize the opportunities for sub-regional transportation and transit development, quality growth and diversification along Trunk Highway 68 through a system of collaboration pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, 1994, Section 471.59, as amended.
MnDOT is initiating the CIMS process on a limited number of corridors, but intends to extend the program to additional state highway corridors in the coming years. In Greater Minnesota, the first round will focus on the Interregional Corridor System and corridors recently identified as supplemental to the IRC system based on their significance for freight movement. In the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, the first round will focus on the state Principal Arterials and transitways that run on state highways. In addition, groups representing several other corridors were part of discussions with MnDOT that led to the creation of CIMS and have been included for continuity. MnDOT will incorporate feedback from this initial round of meetings in future rounds, which will include additional state trunk highway corridors.
More information about CIMS is available at: www.mndot.gov/cims Dates, times, locations and the corridors covered at each meeting are listed on the attached schedule and online at: www.dot.state.mn.us/cims/meetings.html
