MnDOT Connected Corridor

Twin Cities, Minnesota

SRF and MnDOT are developing one of the state’s first connected vehicle (CV) deployments as part of the Connected Corridor Project. Connected Corridor presents MnDOT’s vision for CV technology on a key regional corridor, namely TH-55 between downtown Minneapolis and I-494. SRF’s work on the Connected Corridor project will lay the groundwork for future CV deployments across the state and demonstrate MnDOT’s leadership in deploying new, innovative technologies to improve mobility and safety for Minnesota travelers.

The Connected Corridor Project team solicited input from regional stakeholders, including cities, counties, transit agencies, and private partners. The team conducted a needs assessment and identified and prioritized potential CV applications for the corridor. SRF and project partners then developed Concepts of Operations for the top applications, working with stakeholders to ensure a common vision. After reaching a consensus on the concepts, the project moved to the System Requirements phase, where application details were identified. SRF will continue its role in pioneering CV in Minnesota as it works on the preliminary and final system design and oversees the deployment of the Connected Corridor applications.

SRF’s management and development of MnDOT’s CV program and current role in deploying CV technology on the Connected Corridor makes us a key expert in CV planning, technology, and deployment.
