ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation seeks public comment on its statewide ports and waterways plan.

The first-ever plan of its kind in Minnesota is designed to promote a safe, efficient and cost-effective system for freight shippers. Public comments will be accepted through Dec. 27, at 651-366-3694 or Matthew.Pahs@state.mn.us .

The plan deals with four Lake Superior ports and five the Mississippi River.

"MnDOT supports a commerce-friendly freight network in Minnesota for the benefit of regional and international trade," Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle said. "We must improve and use Minnesota's aging ports, channels and locks and dams along the Mississippi River and Great Lakes to their fullest industrial extent if we are to help businesses move products, compete for jobs and talent and contribute to economic growth."

The plan is at www.dot.state.mn.us/ofrw/pwp.html .
