Engineering solutions for traffic safety

Our mission is to reduce fatal and life changing crashes on Minnesota roadways, to enhance the mobility of all users, and to develop and deploy new technologies and innovative cost-effective traffic solutions. We provide direct services through guidance, resources and training to MnDOT districts, cities, counties, contractors, and consultants. We're an active member of the State’s Toward Zero Deaths initiative, working in collaboration with an extensive network of partners, including state agencies, local government, and educational institutions.
