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).

Understanding Projects with Interactive 3D Models

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.
