TRANSPORTATION CONNECTION

Transportation Connection

ENGAGING COMMUNITIES AND PARTNERS

Transportation Connection is your opportunity to shape the future of North Dakota’s future transportation system and to help NDDOT understand what, how, when, and where transportation investments are needed.

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE

Transportation Connection is the statewide plan for all of transportation across North Dakota and will look out 20 years into the future. This is your opportunity to help identify plausible future scenarios and to tell us what you think North Dakota will look like and what will be needed in 2045.

IDENTIFYING OUR SHARED VALUES AND GOALS

Transportation Connection is your opportunity to inform North Dakota’s shared future vision, values, goals, strategies, and performance measures for the statewide transportation system.

DEVELOPING AN ACTIONABLE PLAN

Transportation Connection is a plan for all of North Dakota and is your opportunity to help NDDOT identify priorities, implement actions, and measure our success moving forward. We know the future is uncertain and this plan will help NDDOT remain agile and responsive to evolving customer needs.

GET INVOLVED

Transportation Connection is your plan and your opportunity to shape North Dakota’s transportation future. Your voice and your ideas are essential and we want to hear from you directly. Due to the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be slowly ramping up our outreach as appropriate. Stay tuned for online engagement opportunities, surveys, videos, follow us on social media using the links below, and contact us directly for more information. And tell your friends, neighbors, and co-workers just how important it is that NDDOT hears from everyone to help develop this plan and to help make transportation easy, safe, and accessible for everyone.

Please tell us a little bit more about yourself

Help us get to know you better. We want to be sure that we are reaching all North Dakota residents, so it would be great if you could share a little bit more information about yourself by completing a short demographic survey. Don’t worry, your information will not be used or retained in any other way. Click here to complete the survey.

WHAT IS TRANSPORTATION CONNECTION?

NDDOT is responsible for periodically developing a statewide plan to guide transportation decisions across the entire transportation system. Since the last statewide plan was adopted in 2012 much has changed in North Dakota.

Transportation Connection is NDDOT’s current statewide transportation plan and will:

  • Consider all modes of travel including roads, rail, aviation, bicycling, walking, and even drones;
  • Be informed by your ideas as well as input from residents, businesses, visitors, and state, regional, and local planning partners from across the state;
  • Identify future policies, programs, and principles to help NDDOT deliver the transportation system that North Dakota needs today and tomorrow; and
  • Develop a guiding vision, goals, strategies, and performance measures to help NDDOT make decisions moving forward.

Transportation Connection is not just a Federally-required plan. It will be designed to be implementable and actionable. This plan will address statewide needs and issues, but will not address local roads and streets. Developed in cooperation with partners and stakeholders, this plan will not determine exactly how transportation funds are spent, but will provide guidance and direction to NDDOT on what is important to all North Dakotans.
