The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has released a draft of its $17.3 billion capital investment plan for fiscal years 2019-2023.

About 57 percent of the total amount will go toward improving the reliability of the state's "core transportation system," said MassDOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer in the plan's introduction.

Another 19 percent would be allocated toward modernizing existing assets to better accommodate growth, while 13 percent has been set aside for physical expansion of the state's transportation network. The latter amount includes $1.5 billion for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's Green Line extension.

The document details the state's planned highway, aeronautics, rail and transit investments.

MassDOT on Tuesday began holding meetings to solicit public opinion on the plan. The final meeting will be held May 31.
