The Minnesota Department of Transportation oversees a statewide transportation system, which also includes people who walk and roll. 

Planning

Minnesota Walks

Minnesota Walks, formerly known as the Statewide Pedestrian System Plan, is a collaborative effort between MnDOT and the Minnesota Department of Health designed to be a shared roadmap for how all Minnesotans can have safe, desirable and convenient places to walk and roll where they live, work, learn and play.

Program

Parklets

Parklets are innovative and cost-effective ways to add community space to public streets. They serve as streetscape enhancements where people can gather, sit, chat or relax. Parklets can also provide additional outdoor seating for nearby restaurants or places for outdoor programming.

Data

Bicycle and pedestrian traffic counts

The Minnesota Pedestrian and Bicyclist Counting Program, started in 2013, set out to build a network of automated people counters (both permanent and portable) to collect non-motorized traffic data, and develop methodology for analyzing, validating, evaluating, and managing it.
