Benton County conducted a self-evaluation of its facilities within public rights of way and developed this transition plan detailing how the county will ensure that all of those facilities are accessible to all individuals.
This study was developed to better understand the existing and future traffic operations along County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 75 corridor between I-94 north to 36th Street South. The main questions in the study include: 1) Where should the corridor accommodate future full access points, knowing that 40th Street South will be connected someday as an east/west corridor between Trunk Highway (TH) 15 and CSAH 75, and 2) What other corridor improvements may be necessary along the corridor to provide acceptable traffic operations?
The purpose of this study was to understand existing conditions and to evaluate the feasibility of various ways to improve safe pedestrian and bicyclist crossing of CSAH 75 between CSAH 2 and 20th Avenue SE in Saint Joseph.
The purpose of this study was to document existing and forecast conditions and evaluate the feasibility of alternatives to improve traffic flow, safety, and operations along LeSauk Drive/Dehler Drive and Stearns County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 1.
This study evaluated various alternatives for pavement maintenance and rehabilitation of Townline Road from Stearns CSAH 4 in the City of Sartell to Stearns CSAH 5 in the City of Saint Stephen. Pavement inspections were performed and the resulting pavement ratings were utilized in considering various improvement options along the corridor. Cost estimates were also prepared for the recommended improvements and potential funding options were explored.
This document establishes a menu of future service and capital expansion options for Metro Bus.
This page includes all plans within the GO family of plans.
This report assists regional cities and counties in identifying, planning and implementing their own on-the-road bicycle connections within their respective communities. It is meant for informational and advisory purposes and is currently not tied to any future projects, improvements, or funding.
This review includes an assessment of freight activity in the Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA), a summary of the existing freight networks, and a proposed network of local roads to be designated as key links in the regional freight network.
This report summarizes an investigation of performance measures for the APO in advance of the update of the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
The APO conducted a Pavement Management Study to help meet performance-based planning requirements regarding pavement condition. The study created a baseline for tracking pavement conditions and helped inform investment decisions to maintain the system in a state of good repair.
This effort attempted to define the form and function of an RTCC to improve coordination between various transit service providers and to improve mobility for everyone.
This memorandum provided an overview of current growth and population, a breakdown of the population forecast methodology, descriptions of forecast results, and a brief discussion of important considerations and next steps.
This report investigates the potential to define a return-on-investment performance measure for surface transportation projects within the MPA.
This report documents and maps the pavement condition for major roadways across the region.
This plan establishes a consistent design and character for public design elements in order to support continued downtown vibrancy and economic vitality.
Part of the city’s future transportation network includes the extension of 15th Street North between Pinecone Road and 30th Avenue North (Townline Road/75th Avenue). This study was a proactive measure to better understand the feasibility of the extension.
This report documents the pavement roughness for the regions shared-use paths and maps the pavement condition by jurisdiction.
Stearns County conducted a self-evaluation of its facilities within public rights of way and developed this transition plan detailing how the county will ensure that all of those facilities are accessible to all individuals.
This annual report documents how the region’s transportation systems are performing relative to selected measures of performance.
This memorandum describes the process used to recalibrate and validate the APO’s travel demand model (TDM) to year base year 2015.
This page contains links to various documents regarding the development of an arterial ring-road around the metropolitan area.
As part of an effort to increase the amount of community involvement in the design phase of state highway construction, MnDOT asked the APO to assist in identifying issues and starting conversations at the local level about current and potential future bicycle and pedestrian movements in and around the future US-10 and TH-23 interchange reconstruction project.
