JACKSON, MISS.—The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) is developing a plan to ensure all Mississippian’s and visitors have access to the Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure with a focus on the connectivity of rural and urban areas.


The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program is providing dedicated funding to states to deploy Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access and reliability. Funding under this program is initially directed to designated Alternative Fuel Corridors for electric vehicles to build out this national network, particularly along the interstate highway system.


To receive the allocated funds, MDOT must submit an EV infrastructure deployment plan by August 1, 2022, to the Federal Highway Administration describing the department’s goals and how it intends to use NEVI funds. The deployment plan will cover areas such as charging infrastructure deployment, existing and future conditions, and public engagement.


MDOT is currently soliciting comments from interested parties for the 2022 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan. To provide input, please fill out the public opinion survey HERE(


Comments should be received by July 15, 2022, to be considered by MDOT for the 2022 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan. The plan will address statewide connectivity and the deployment of EV charging infrastructure along the interstate system to ensure reliable travel across the state.
