The City of St. Louis Park was looking to connect their existing pedestrian facilities to new sidewalk and trails throughout the city. They also wanted to create bikeways that connected to neighboring communities.
Bolton & Menk created horizontal and vertical alignments to connect the city’s existing facilities together. There were many unique and difficult areas where grades and locations of the trail needed to be built, including areas adjacent to schools and parks. We also determined which pedestrian crossing technology would be used to allow for safe routes to and from these facilities.
Bolton & Menk was able to design and build trail and sidewalk systems that met current ADA and MnDOT standards, while also providing children safe routes to and from school.
