MnDOT seeks online input for state bicycle system plan
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Those interested in helping the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) develop a statewide bicycle system plan can provide input through an online interactive map and survey available through June 1.


The information will help MnDOT identify where improvements are most needed on existing facilities in the bike system so that the agency can more effectively address the needs of bicycle riders in Minnesota.

The online interactive map and survey are an extension of nine statewide workshops held throughout the state in April and May to gather information about bicycling issues and facility preferences from the public, local government officials and transportation supporters.

“Just like the workshops, the online interactive map and survey will allow people to tell us exactly how MnDOT’s roadways affect their bicycling experiences in their communities and throughout the state,” said Greta Alquist, bike planner. “It is important for us to learn about routes or barriers we may not be aware of and whether there is interest in bicycle connections that don’t exist yet.”

The survey and online interactive map are available at

The statewide bicycle system plan will be completed in winter 2014-15.

For more information on the project, visit A summary of results from the workshops will be available on the website.
