Bringing Smart Roads to Minnesota

 The strategic plan addresses nine key questions identified by MnDOT in terms of how C/AV will impact the department and partner agencies, and relies on a scenario planning exercise to consider multiple policies designed for the most positive outcomes. The project is driven by extensive stakeholder outreach, covering a range of state agencies and outside stakeholders. In addition, WSP is facilitating a series of 10 stakeholder workshops to review scenarios and consider policy and tactical recommendations. The plan supports reporting as required in an executive order that established a Governor’s Council on C/AV.
