University of Minnesota Snow Control Web Tools: Maintenance and Administration

Principal Investigator:

Arlene Mathison, Director, Digital Info & Lib. Svcs., Center for Transportation Studies

Project Summary:

This project is for the Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) to display and maintain the web-based tools developed from previous Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT)-sponsored projects: the Living Snow Fence cost-benefit tool and the Living Snow Fence design tool. CTS developed the Blowing Snow Control Tools website at http://costbenefit.snowcontroltools.umn.edu/index.html, which includes access to the tools along with videos and documentation for using the tools. CTS updated the annual data used in the cost-benefit tool. CTS also marketed the tools through communications mechanisms such as the CTS website and Catalyst newsletter and the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) website and Exchange newsletter.
