University proposals were solicited beginning August 1 from a prioritized list of research needs (see 'RFP' tab). MnDOT TRIG will meet Dec. 8 & 9 and the LRRB will meet Dec. 3 & 4 to hear presentations and select proposals for funding. Implementation assistance funding requests can be developed at any time throughout the year. (Click here to read the implementation project guidelines PDF.)
