Minnesota Transportation History (Minnesota Department of Transportation): Minnesota Transportation System

Minnesota Transportation System

The transportation system in Minnesota goes back to the late 19th century. Over many years, early transportation agencies were formed and replaced and eventually became MnDOT. The rapid expansion of the transportation system in Minnesota is a carefully planned system accommodating all modalities. In this guide you will find resources on the topics of the predominant features of our system for getting around: roads and bridges.
