Directions in Transportation 2035: Duluth-Superior Long Range Transportation Plan (July 2010)

With a 20 year outlook, the plan examines our area's transportation system against its current and future mobility needs, and establishes a set of strategies designed to meet those needs and achieve the transportation objectives of our area's communities.
