This project focuses on informing the citizens of North Dakota about the state of their transportation system, soliciting their input into how that system could be sustained and improved, and encouraging their involvement in decision-making processes related to transportation infrastructure and services.

Through a series of eight regional workshops and one statewide conference, almost 600 persons representing a broad swatch of stakeholders in North Dakota's transportation system had an opportunity to become more informed about transportation issues and to provide well-founded ideas and opinions about how transportation services could be improved.

The information prepared by the project staff at the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute and the ideas and suggestions offered by the workshop and conference participants will serve as useful, timely information in discussions about the state's transportation system during the 2009 legislative session.
