Working Together to Achieve a Common Goal: The CSAH 61/TH 41 Improvements Project

The City of Chaska’s vision is to revitalize their downtown as the hub for community destinations and gathering places that reflect and celebrate its historic character, traditional small-town atmosphere, and core values. Two major highways traverse downtown Chaska, State Highway 41 (Chestnut Street) and County Highway 61 (Chaska Boulevard).

The City of St. Louis Park has made it a priority to ensure bicyclists have the necessary facilities to make safe and efficient trips by initiating their Connect the Park Plan in 2012.

Innovative Tools in Airport Planning

Incorporating the latest technology in developing an airport layout plan can provide crucial information to decision-makers in a visual and interactive manner. Our aviation services group uses innovative tools to think outside the box during the airport planning process and beyond. We create successful outcomes for you by integrating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and geographic information systems (GIS) technology into our airport projects.

Enhancing Public Outreach with Web GIS Engagement Practices

Public engagement has always been a crucial aspect for projects that require input and opinions from citizens and stakeholders. Over the last five years, technology availability and convenience has rapidly increased. With the internet at our fingertips, a wider audience can be reached, and public input can be collected and analyzed more efficiently and accurately. By developing and implementing Geographic Information System (GIS) engagement tools, more opportunities have been created for stakeholders to gain access to new information and gauge how projects are affecting their communities.
