The M-35 Route, “Waterway of the Saints,” extends from St. Paul, Minn., to Grafton, Ill., located just north of St. Louis. The five state transportation departments lead the M-35 Route optimization.  Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin work with industry and other regional partners to improve freight mobility through innovative, integrated strategic approaches as well as to promote the inland waterways as a means to relieve land-side transportation congestion and improve the nation’s overall transportation system.
