Project Description

 

The goal of this project is to develop new strategies for preserving the Minnesota Department of Transportation roadway and bridge infrastructure by minimizing the damage from overweight trucks that are not in compliance with State weight regulations.

 

This project builds upon the Mn/DOT Statewide Commercial Vehicle Weight Compliance Strategic Plan to produce a working Virtual Weigh Station "Starter" system at a very reasonable cost and within a very short time frame. This project will initiate several of the technical aspects described in Phase 1 of the Weight Compliance Strategic Plan Schedule.
