Principal Investigator(s):

Frank Douma, Director, State & Local Policy, Humphrey School of Public Affairs


Project summary:

This project will create a training on transportation equity issues for MnDOT employees that is focused on decisions and conditions faced by Departments of Transportation. The training is meant to provide foundational information about transportation equity and the connections between equity and transportation policy, planning, design, and engineering in Minnesota. This will include definitions, concepts, and case studies demonstrating transportation equity principles and conditions in action for MnDOT staff to consider and foster in its own processes to produce equitable outcomes in and for the communities it serves. The first training sessions are anticipated to take place in late fall or winter of 2022-2023.
