What is MnROAD?
MnROAD is a pavement test track made up of various research materials and pavements owned and operated by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, working with its partners. Located near Albertville, Minnesota, MnROAD works in conjunction with MnDOT's Materials Lab. It finds ways to make roads last longer, perform better, cost less to build and maintain, be built faster and have minimal impact on the environment.
MnROAD has over 50 unique test sections on the following two roadway segments:
- 3.5 mile (Interstate-94) Mainline.
- 2.5 mile Low Volume Road.
