Enhancing Emergency Vehicle Access to Public Roadways

Emergency vehicles must get to locations as quickly and as effectively as possible. When sight lines are impacted, a nearby traffic signal or emergency beacon may be activated to notify approaching vehicles to be on the lookout for emergency vehicles. The Minnesota Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MNMUTCD) includes another option; the Emergency Vehicle Hybrid Beacon (EVHB).

Airport Planning and GIS

Airport planning has become a key component when working towards federal funding for an airport capital improvement project. While spending entitlement dollars on the planning paperwork is not the most exciting item to pay for, the results are valuable for the airport staff, FAA, and the community. Completing successful Airport Master Plans, Airport Layout Plans (ALPs), and environmental assessments allow projects to move forward with the support and justification needed for federal funding.
