ROCHESTER, Minn. - Tuesday, the Rochester Olmsted Council of Governments presented the planning process of their long range transportation plan to the Committee of the Whole.

The 20-25 year plan is required by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.

"Primarily, it used to be just roads and roads only. It's transformed into bicycle, pedestrian transit. It also includes freight and mobility. It also includes rail and aviation, so it's everything transportation," explains interim planning director of the Rochester Planning Department Ben Griffith.
