'We Put Your Ideas in Motion'
Research Services & Library, part of MnDOT's Office of Transportation System Management, helps solve transportation problems by administering research projects for MnDOT and the Local Road Research Board.
At any given time, we actively manage approximately 190 research projects in progress, ranging from local initiatives to pooled-fund projects with other states, comprising both basic and applied research. We are also home to one of the nation's most elite transportation libraries. (Please note that the library has its own dedicated website, which you can find here.)
Research Services provides comprehensive assistance across four areas of expertise:
Research Services can help you articulate your research needs, finalize your research work plans, manage your research projects and implement the results.
Finance and Contract Services
We identify potential funding sources, assist with the contracting process (including amendments) and relieve you of budgetary and regulatory headaches.
Our library staff can save you valuable time by honing in on the right resources to answer your questions and by providing updated materials to keep you current in your field.
Marketing and Communications
We provide information and results to transportation practitioners and the general public to create awareness and promote application of research findings.
