, Deputy Director, Center for Transportation Studies
The Minnesota Department of Transportation and Hennepin County have funded a number of research projects under the umbrella of the Access to Destinations Study. The purpose of the overall study is to develop new methods of evaluating our transportation system through the use of accessibility measures. The assumption guiding this research is that measures of accessibility will help us better understand how our transportation and land use system is performing, how it has changed, and how future investments and policies will affect that system. The objective of this project, in support of the overall study, is to provide ongoing administrative and managerial oversight necessary to coordinate the research efforts of the Access to Destinations Study.
