Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. In 2011, Carver County completed a traffic study of the intersection of CSAH 10 and State Highway 41. This intersection is adjacent to a campus that includes three schools and the Chaska Community Center. The goal of this project was to develop recommendations to provide safer bicycle and pedestrian routes to the schools and community center from surrounding residential neighborhoods. Project lead Bill Monk from the City of Chaska collaborated with four groups of students in CEGE 3201: Introduction to Transportation Engineering, to develop a set of recommendations, which included installing raised crosswalks, developing a new school bus corral, and altering bus and automobile routes within the campus. The students' aggregated final report is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in CEGE 3201: Introduction to Transportation Engineering, taught by Dr. David Levinson in Spring 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
