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 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.
To assist clients with their understanding of the complex project, Bolton & Menk, Inc. used state-of-the-art AutoCAD Plan 3D design software and renderings to produce a realistic model of the treatment facility allowing operators, the public utilities department, city management, and council to easily review and understand the upgrades. The 3D plans provided the cities with drawings showing the structures, equipment, pumps, piping, and valves as they will be constructed.
