About the Midwest Transportation Consortium

The Midwest Transportation Consortium (MTC) is one of 10 regional University Transportation Centers sponsored by the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) of the U.S. DOT. The MTC is funded by the 2012 federal transportation bill, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The center is currently pending approval by the Iowa Board of Regents.

Focus Area

The research focus area for the MTC is "State of Good Repair," a key program under MAP-21. The MTC will focus its research on data-driven performance measures of transportation infrastructure, traffic safety, and project construction.

In addition to research, the grant from the U.S. DOT's Research and Innovative Technology Administration will also support education programs, leadership development, diversity promotion, and outreach efforts.

Partner Universities

The MTC is a consortium of six universities and will include researchers and students from each:

Iowa State University is the lead institution, and the Center is administered through ISU's Institute for Transportation.

Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kansas, is also a collaborator.

Researchers at the partner schools will work with their state transportation departments and other agencies to identify transportation projects and programs important to the Midwest and the various states.
