25 Years of Learning — MnROAD’s Anniversary MnROAD employee group photoOpen House

Cosponsored by the University of Minnesota, Department of Civil, Environmental, and
Geo- Engineering

Please join us on Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019 at MnROAD for a celebration of the anniversary of the creation of one of the most important pavement research facilities in the U.S. The open house will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and everyone is welcome. The day will include:

  • Tours of the facilities and test tracks
  • Equipment demos, many of which were invented at MnROAD
  • Light lunch and snacks served at 11:30
  • Meeting some of the founders of MnROAD

The path forward for MnROAD is bright. That is, in part, because its history is so rich. If you have been part of that history, we thank you and we hope to see you in August.

Everyone is welcome throughout the day. If you plan to join us for lunch, please RSVP to lisa.bilotta@state.mn.us so we can get the right amount of food.
