The overall objective of this study was to capture the critical transportation and infrastructure issues which influence economic development in North Dakota. The issues were identified through three conferences held within one year. Results were conveyed to the Hubert Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Humphrey Institute received a grant from the Federal Highway Administration to explore transportation and infrastructure finance policy in a multi-state region. Five states were included in the study. The states include North and South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, and Montana. The Midwest consensus was being developed to be presented before Congress in 1993.
