Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- MnDOT representatives made a stop in Duluth Thursday night to get the public's input on Minnesota's statewide bicycle system plan.

This was the fifth of nine meetings MnDOT has scheduled during National Bike Month.

The community participated in a series of workshop activities to determine their biking preferences.

They also discussed topics such as better planning for bike facilities, trails and connections between destinations.

"One of the things people talked about a lot was sometimes there is a trail or a bike lane but it's not always a seamless connection so getting a better understanding where those gaps are is really important to us," said Greta Alquist, MnDOT Transportation Planner.

The public can still submit written comments on the project website.
