Project Overview

This project included the design and construction of pedestrian curb ramps along Penn Avenue and Humboldt Avenue in Minneapolis for Hennepin County Public Works.

Beyond Design

Throughout the design and construction, we helped introduce ADA compliance to Hennepin County through field walks, compliance checks, and explaining the various guidelines for compliance.

Community Responsibility

We provided design and construction of Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) layouts to accommodate new push-button pedestals to be added to the quadrants in the future when the signals would ultimately be upgraded. This inclusion helped to reduce unnecessary future construction and costs. Plus, it would provide future designers with a compliant location for a push button with the design and construction included in the project.
