HR Green was previously retained by the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) to conduct hydrologic and hydraulic analyses and provide preliminary bridge design services for replacing existing structure number 03-240-050 along Highway 37, over the James River in Beadle County, South Dakota.
With an increased emphasis in the US on multi-modal transportation and awareness of public health, there is more funding available for projects that include sidewalks or multi-use trails. Not surprisingly, HR Green has designed a number of projects requiring pedestrian bridges to carry sidewalks and trails over roadways and creeks. As we gain experience with these types of projects, we have learned valuable lessons and identified common misconceptions regarding pedestrian bridges.
Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) and City of St. Paul selected the team of HR Green and Inter-Fluve to conduct a feasibility study, develop concept plans and final design, complete three construction bid packages and construction oversight for the Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary and Regional Trail.
The Edina-Richfield Interceptor Improvements project constructed a regional sanitary sewer across Richfield to accommodate redevelopment in Edina. Standard MCES practice is to repair streets in a fashion similar to their original condition. However, HR Green used a Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) approach to engage the public in the design of 75th and 76th Streets in Richfield. The result is Richfield’s first “Complete Street” system, which encourages walking, bicycling and mass transit use. This method was also less costly for MCES, resulting in a win-win outcome for Richfield and MCES.
