MnDOT Slope Vulnerability Assessments

This effort would build on Local Road Research Board (LRRB) and Hennepin County work, other national research, and the flood vulnerability assessment to identify vulnerable slopes near trunk highways (and potentially CSAH or MSAS routes) in three or four MnDOT districts. High-priority districts for inclusion in this effort are districts 6, 7, and Metro. The goals are to identify, map, and rank slopes vulnerable to slides that could affect the trunk highway network; prioritize areas for additional study or proactive stabilization work; better understand and quantify the risk of future slope failures; inform future asset management, investment, and emergency management planning efforts.
