This one-day workshop provides a basic definition of tort liability and discussion of how it applies to roadway design, construction, and maintenance. Minnesota case studies are used to illustrate effective procedures to avoid liability for governmental agencies. The workshop includes a video demonstrating how good planning, record keeping, and procedures reduced one county's liability in an actual case. Actual experiences are discussed during the workshop.
