About ITS

Who we are

The Intelligent Transportation Systems unit is a small group of traffic engineers organized within MnDOT’s Office of Traffic, Safety and Technology. The group is made up of four MnDOT traffic engineers responsible for performing research, demonstrations and operational test activities focusing on technology based transportation solutions. Many of these efforts take the form of projects using contracted services offered by various consultants and vendors.

The ITS unit supports MnDOT’s overall vision of creating a multimodal transportation system that maximizes the health of people, the environment and our economy. Our focus is on bringing new technologies and systems into Minnesota’s transportation system in order to achieve a safer, more accessible, efficient and reliable multimodal transportation system that connects people to destinations and markets throughout the state, regionally and around the world.
