2040 Transportation Plan
The Dakota County 2040 Transportation Plan was developed as part of the Dakota County 2040 Comprehensive Plan (DC2040). The plan is a guide to maintain and improve the transportation system while aligning with DC2040 land use goals and objectives. It provides detailed definition and guidance in determining the county transportation priorities, goals, strategies and policies.
The plan also identifies the county's long-term investment needs and is a basis in the development of the county's annual Capital Improvement Program. Download the 2040 Transportation Plan.
