Specialty and competitive programs

Intelligent Transportation Systems

Scoring criteria for the Intelligent Transportation Systems Program. A total of 21 points is available spread equally between seven criteria: deliverability, maintenance and operations, technology risk, plan consistency, warrants, need and financial match.

The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) program funds the installation of new or upgrade of existing electronics, communications, or information processing systems or services to improve the efficiency and safety of the state highway system.

Potential projects are identified by MnDOT district staff, who provide project requests to the MnDOT Office of Traffic Engineering.

How the projects scored

The construction costs shown on this list represent a very rough estimate based on limited information available at the time selection decisions were made. Actual construction and delivery costs will change over time as projects go from a concept through the project development process and are eventually constructed.
