Welcome to the MN Transportation Research Collaboration Site
MnDOT Research Services wants your ideas for the Local Road Research Board, MnDOT Research Program and Research Implementation Program, and this is where we gather them. Register or log in to submit a new idea or vote on the ideas to show your support.
Updated 2/15/2018: Twenty new implementation project ideas were received by the February 9 deadline.
The next step is to complete an implementation project proposal form (link below) and send it back to Research Services by March 2. You will have an opportunity to present your idea to the TRIG on March 27.
The deadline for new research ideas for this year's research RFP is May 11, 2018. Research ideas will be prioritized by TRIG and LRRB in June, and high priority research needs will be developed into research need statements and posted for university proposals in August. The proposals will be prioritized and selected for funding in December. In December 2017, 27 research projects were funded by TRIG and LRRB. Those project funding awards were posted on the research RFP web site: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/research/rfp.html.
Note that new implementation ideas can be submitted at any time for development into an implementation plan and funding request. Your implementation plan will be considered by TRIG at their next scheduled meeting (TRIG is a panel of MnDOT office directors and district engineers.)
