MnDOT is hosting a virtual listening session on Thursday, September 3 from Noon to 1:30 p.m. to discuss potential transportation-specific climate actions.  

The Walz-Flanagan administration and all state agencies are working to reduce the worst impacts of climate change and help Minnesota communities prepare for the climate change impacts that can’t be avoided. This fall, the Minnesota Climate Change Subcabinet will review and finalize a set of potential actions we can take in Minnesota to combat the climate crisis. The transportation-specific climate actions discussed during the listening session were identified by Minnesotans in recent state-led planning processes. 

To prevent further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT is only hosting virtual public meetings at this time. During this virtual listening session, agency staff will discuss potential transportation climate actions that have been identified through the Minnesota Climate Change Subcabinet efforts and invite feedback.
