2030 Transportation Plan
The Dakota County Transportation Plan is a part of the Dakota County Comprehensive Plan. It is used as a guide to maintain and improve the transportation system while staying in line with land use goals and objectives and transportation policies.
The county is required to update the Comprehensive Plan at least once every 10 years. However, a strategy of the Transportation Plan is to review and update the Transportation Plan every five years.
The county updates the Transportation Plan so current conditions and funding needs can be identified and funding strategies can be developed to address these needs. The update allows the county to properly analyze impacts on transportation system performance, to re-examine the county’s overall transportation needs, and to reevaluate strategies, policies and measures.

Transportation sales and use tax projects
Dakota County implemented a quarter-cent sales tax and $20 excise tax on new vehicle sales to fund much needed Dakota County transit and transportation projects.
A list of eligible transportation projects is available. These projects are eligible for the use of the tax, but does not ensure the project will be completed. The list may be amended by the Board of Commissioners following a public hearing. See a map of eligible projects.
