The City of Rogers is a prosperous and growing community in northern Hennepin County, with a population of 13,150 residents. The city has grown rapidly, almost quadrupling in size since 2000, when its population was 3,600. Its downtown area is generally characterized by auto-oriented development with disconnected buildings, large parking lots, and low walkability, though it also includes a small finer-grained district with pedestrian-scaled storefronts, sidewalk-fronting buildings and historic façades.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) will provide the organizing vision and direction for all of the State of North Dakota's transportation investments and initiatives over the next twenty years.
CDG is leading all pedestrian and bicycle-related components of the LRTP, working as part of the multi-disciplinary team selected by NDDOT for this effort.
CDG's work includes:
We're working with local partners to develop three new bikeways in the city of Aguascalientes, Mexico. The bikeways will provide important safety and connectivity improvements across the city, and are part of a larger, currently planned network of fifteen major bikeways. The bikeways feature latest safety and user comfort features informed by guidance from NACTO and the Ciclociudades manual (jointly developed by ITDP Mexico and the Dutch Bicycle Embassy).
Marshalltown Iowa is the county seat for Marshall County and a prosperous community of about 28,000 people located in central Iowa. In the summer of 2018 it was hit by a category EF3 tornado with winds of 145 mph which caused severe damage in multiple areas of the community, including the city's historic Main Street District and surrounding residential neighborhoods.
Oak Creek, a city of approximately 35,000 people located just south of Milwaukee, is focused on improving walkability and access to Active Transportation for all people in their community.
Edina's new plan focuses on building an "All Ages and Abilities" walking and biking network - an ambitious and achievable goal for this developed first-ring suburban community.
International Falls is the northernmost city in Minnesota and the seat of Koochiching County. With a population of about 6,000 people, the city is located on the Rainy River, along the US / Canada border, and is the largest port of entry for international railroad traffic in the United States today. It includes significant paper industry operations, and is an important gateway for tourism, including for visitors to Voyageurs National Park.
We are working with Three Rivers Park District to determine the preferred alignments for two future regional trails along the western Twin Cities metro area. The trails will include a north-south corridor between Bryant Lake and French Regional Parks, and an extension of the Dakota Rail Regional Trail.
The new trails will connect key park destinations, provide connectivity and access through the cities of Plymouth, Wayzata, Minnetonka and Eden Prairie, and connect to important local parks, trails and destinations.
Development of the Bottineau LRT line is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a city-shaping, multi-modal spine for the communities along its length. Ensuring that the corridor’s diversity of residents, partners, and communities — including under-represented, transit-dependent, and health-disparity communities — have full opportunity to participate in and shape essential walking and biking access to stations will result in a line that grows ridership, meets the needs of potential users, and provides ladders of opportunity for all area residents.
Highway 252 is a four-mile signalized highway that provides a crucial north-south connection between Interstates 94/694 and Highway 610 to the north. MnDOT, Hennepin County and the cities of Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park are studying several access concepts to improve safety and mobility at the six intersections along the corridor.
