National Road Research Alliance

National Road Research Alliance LogoThe National Road Research Alliance (NRRA) has a mandate to improve the future sustainability of our roads through research and a commitment to cooperative implementation. The alliance sponsors research at the MnROAD test track, one of the most sophisticated cold-weather pavement facilities in existence. Our alliance consists of state DOTs, private companies, academic institutions and associations. Together, they make the decisions for MnROAD construction and research.

Our alliance is strong, but it would be stronger with your participation. Join us and shape the future of our roads.
