Topics
Minnesota Department of Transportation Confidence: 89% Arrow up

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT, pronounced "min-dot") oversees transportation by land, water, and air in the U.S. state of Minnesota.

The cabinet-level agency is responsible for maintaining the state's trunk highway system (including state highways, U.S. highways, and interstate highways), funding municipal airports and maintaining radio navigation aids, and other activities.

Carol Molnau, who served as Minnesota's lieutenant governor under Tim Pawlenty, led the department as Commissioner of Transportation from the start of the Pawlenty administration in 2003 until her February 2008 removal in the aftermath of the I-35W Mississippi River bridge collapse.

Thomas K.

"Tom" Sorel succeeded her as commissioner and was reappointed when Mark Dayton became governor.

Sorel has resigned from his position effective December 1, 2012, and his deputy commissioner, Bernard J.

"Bernie" Arseneau, was appointed to act as interim commissioner.

On December 15, 2012, Governor Mark Dayton announced that Charlie Zelle, CEO of Jefferson Lines, would be MnDOT's next commissioner, effective January 15, 2013.

Construction Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure.

Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without a designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client.

Construction as an industry comprises six to nine percent of the gross domestic product of developed countries.

Highway Confidence: 70% Arrow up

A highway is any public road or other public way on land.

It is used for major roads, but also includes other public roads and public tracks: It is not an equivalent term to controlled-access highway, or a translation for autobahn, autoroute, etc.

In other words, it is the answer to a question of some kind.

It is thus related to data and knowledge, as data represents values attributed to parameters, and knowledge signifies understanding of real things or abstract concepts.

As it regards data, the information's existence is not necessarily coupled to an observer (it exists beyond an event horizon, for example), while in the case of knowledge, the information requires a cognitive observer.

Road Confidence: 70% Arrow up

A road is a thoroughfare, route, or way on land between two places that has been paved or otherwise improved to allow travel by foot or some form of , including a motor vehicle, cart, bicycle, or horse.
