MnROAD research generates many publications. These publications have significantly advanced the understanding of pavement and materials performance.
MnROAD Researchers generate small 4 -page reports designed to offer insight into the research being performed. They offer a variety of topics and give a succinct overview.

Phase 1 and Lessons Learned
From the start of construction on MnROAD in June 1990 to the conclusion of MnROAD’s first ten years of operation in 2004, engineers at MnROAD researched pavements and collected and analyzed data. Many of these activities were recorded in a number of reports published by Mn/ DOT and others.
