The HRDC’s role in solving regional transportation issues takes many forms. At our core, we utilize our partnership with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) to work on regionally significant planning or development projects in transportation. We serve as transportation experts for our small town staff, facilitators when communities need problems solving, and planners for a safe and reliable transportation network. We engage local engineers, elected officials, and residents on planning projects aimed at improving our streets, highways, trails, and sidewalks. However, you get from A to B, we are working on making it safer and more reliable.
Headwaters Regional Transportation Coordination Council (RTCC) is a 15-member advisory board of regional government & human service agencies with the purpose of improving mobility for transportation disadvantaged individuals. The Council identifies barriers and develops solutions that improve access to critical destinations such as medical care, employment, or social services. Headwaters RTCC also helps with travel arrangements for trips unable to completed by using traditional transportation options.
