Researchers at the University of Minnesota will lead a project focused on improving safety on the roads in the Midwest.

The Center for Transportation Studies at the university is now being called the Region Five Center for Roadway Safety Solutions. That region includes Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.

The center was awarded more than $10 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to conduct the research.
