Work Zone Travel Time Collaboration in Minnesota

Rural freeways do not have the infrastructure to provide traveler information, especially for travel times and travel delays caused by construction and maintenance work zones. Typically, a common practice to provide traveler information to motorists would include installing portable data collection devices and displaying real-time traffic information on changeable message signs (CMS). However, these systems are costly and require efforts that can be quite extensive in regards to initial engineering, system installation, and adjustments along with the collection of validation data to measure accuracy. MnDOT continually seeks to take a proactive innovative approach to enhance safety, mobility and efficiency on Minnesota’s roadways. In regards to work zone travel time, the overall objective is to obtain and display accurate, reliable third party real-time traffic data information as a cost effective alternative to inform motorists of travel times and/or travel delays.
