    • Abstract:
      The Minnesota Department of Transportation initiated a study focused on the effects of major traffic generators on

      local highway systems. Minnesota State University and SRF Consulting Group, Inc. will conduct a major research

      study on the topic. To assist in that research CTC & Associates was asked to conduct a preliminary investigation

      focused on large wind farm developments, an increasingly common type of major traffic generators in Minnesota.

      The development of large wind farms necessarily includes the movement of very large, oversize trucks carrying

      wind turbines over county roads. This construction raises several concerns, including pavement damage; indirect

      impact to the immediate area surrounding the roads; and related costs to local governments to repair and maintain

      the roads and to mitigate other effects. The preliminary investigation focused on gathering information related to the

      two main areas of inquiry in the research project: calculating pavement damage and secondary impacts due to large

      vehicle traffic; and policy options for local governments to recapture the costs of roadway maintenance caused by

      wind farm development.
