Can anyone tell me how the CTPP data will be disseminated? I see the profiles are on the AASHTO website, but will the data for my state be sent to me on CD, along with the CTPP access tool? I'm the DOT contact for Minnesota, so I know it will be coming to me in some way, but will others outside of the DOT or MPOs be able to access and analyze the data independently, without going through me or an MPO? For example, people at a University who might be interested?
Thank you for any information you can provide.
