Efforts to develop more efficient traffic congestion management strategies have included transit initiatives like the Northwest Corridor (Bottineau Boulevard) Bus Rapid Transitway serving communities between Rogers and downtown Minneapolis. HKGi's involvement on the project was as a sub-consultant on two separate phases of the project.
The first phase was led by IBI Group. HKGi provided land use planning and public process facilitation as part of an effort to educate stakeholders on the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) opportunities associated with varying alignments for fixed route transit services. In this role, HKGi provided analysis of station locations within communities along the corridor, identifying potential TOD opportunities and challenges.
HKGi utilized regional and local GIS data and site investigations to map and illustrate potential TOD opportunities. A series of presentations were conducted to various stakeholder groups
