Transportation research covers a wide range of topics, from pavement and bridges to human behavior and policy. Disseminating and providing access to those research results allows transportation practitioners and policymakers to use the research in their decisions and practices, ultimately improving the transportation system in Minnesota. In 2004, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) Research Services Section (RSS) began contracting with the Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) to coordinate the publication of final research reports. This contract continues this work, during which time CTS will provide assistance to MnDOT's RSS in publishing research results, including coordinating technical and editorial reviews and preparing the files for publication.
