The LRRB welcomes research ideas from Minnesota’s local transportation practitioners. Our staff will evaluate your need to determine whether a current solution exists. If your idea requires new research, it will be brought to the LRRB for further consideration.
You can submit your idea three ways:
- Share on the LRRB-MnDOT IdeaScale website.
- Ask your city or county engineer to submit at a State Aid pre-screening meeting
- Contact an LRRB board member.
If an idea is selected for further consideration, a need statement must be prepared.
Serve on a Technical Advisory Panel
The LRRB requires local agency participation on Technical Advisory Panels (TAP) to guide the development of new research and implementation projects. As a TAP member, you will attend a limited number of meetings and review research results. You will also help researchers and the LRRB find the most productive ways to apply research results in the field.
