Project summary:

Toward Zero Deaths Conference brings together Minnesota's traffic safety stakeholders to provide the latest information on traffic safety initiatives and strategies, and to provide training on traffic safety topics. The MnDOT Office of Traffic, Safety, and Technology, in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety, seeks the support of the Center for Transportation Studies to plan and carry out the two-day TZD Conference.

CTS brings to bear skills in conference planning, management, and outreach to deliver this event. CTS also coordinates program activities for the TZD effort, such as management of the leadership and program teams, delivery of the stakeholder breakfasts, and management of the working group. This program management work allows CTS to tie the ideas discussed at these meetings and activities into the conference planning process.
