The 2016 Statewide Freight System Plan released this past week by the Minnesota Department of Transportation identifies Hutchinson as a secondary regional trade center. The plan is designed to guide the agency and its partners in preserving and improving the state’s freight transportation system. State Highway 22 between Glencoe and Hutchinson is designated as an inter-regional corridor. The freight plan describes the state’s current freight system and its role in Minnesota’s economy, current and emerging trends, system performance, and current and future issues and needs. The 2016 plan is one of MnDOT’s transportation plans that support the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan and the Minnesota GO 50-year for transportation in the state. It guides planning and investments by stakeholders and outlines 30 strategies to advance freight in the state.
