With speeding through highway work zones posing an increasingly prevalent threat, the Minnesota Department of Transportation MnDOT and traffic control contractors are taking extensive steps to protect workers engaged in a 3 ½-year project.

The Fall issue of Roadway Safety magazine details the steps those partners are taking for this long-term work on Interstate 494. Read about this project and much more in this issue, available online now.

The magazine also delves into the hot topic of artificial intelligence, looking at how it’s being applied to optimize business and employed to raise the bar with intelligent traffic management systems.

Check out the Fall issue to:

  • Learn about the record-breaking year for state advocacy events.
  • Get a glimpse into plans for the 2024 Convention & Traffic Expo in San Diego.
