The LRRB funds innovations suggested by local transportation practitioners. We welcome your ideas and your participation as we seek to make our streets safer, our roads and bridges last longer, and our operations more efficient.
The LRRB’s Research and Implementation Committee (RIC) communicates the results of our research through presentations, videos, workshops, field demonstrations, online training and other outreach methods.
Each December, the LRRB evaluates research proposals and selects some for funding.
A Transportation Research Synthesis (TRS) is a limited scope, short turnaround research project to gauge the current state of practice in an area of interest. A TRS is useful in determining whether a full-blown research project will be needed.
Administered by the Minnesota Local Technical Assistance Program, the Operational Research Assistance Program for Local Transportation Groups was established to encourage and fund applied research and assist in developing innovations relating to methods, materials and equipment used in the construction and maintenance operations of local government organizations.
