As part of MnDOT’s Corridor Investment Management Strategy initiative and consistent with the Minnesota GO Vision, MnDOT will be soliciting proposals for trunk highway projects that improve quality of life, environmental health or economic competitiveness. MnDOT Districts, cities, counties and tribes will be eligible to receive funding as part of the CIMS Solicitation in state fiscal years 2014 and 2015.
The application for this pilot round of the CIMS Solicitation will be posted on MnDOT’s website later this week (http://www.dot.state.mn.us/cims/solicitation.html) and applications will be due April 30, 2013.
To provide potential applicants more information about the solicitation and an opportunity to ask questions and receive guidance on completing the application, MnDOT has scheduled several information sessions throughout the state. For those unable to attend in person, the March 11 session will be available through Adobe Connect and will be recorded.
Information about the MnDOT/DEED Transportation Economic Development program will also be available at the sessions (separate notice on the TED program forthcoming).
Registration for the information sessions is requested for planning purposes, but not required. To RSVP for a session, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
