“We are proud to continue our partnership with MnDOT to help enhance bicycle and pedestrian mobility and improve safety,” said Sara Hage, HNTB Minnesota Office Leader. “This program is essential to ensuring a fully cohesive transportation network that meets the needs of the project communities.”
The program supports MnDOT’s vision for a multimodal transportation system and works together with the Complete Streets Policy, the Environmental Planning and Design Unit, and others to create projects that include safe and comfortable facilities for all users.
HNTB developed the scoping program alongside MnDOT in 2018 to review bicycle and pedestrian needs during the project development process so that recommendations can be incorporated with other project needs. With this contract HNTB also teams with Isthmus Engineering, a DBE firm located in the Twin Cities.
“By considering all users during the project planning stages, we are better able to offer transportation solutions for everyone and benefit the entire community,” said Maria Donnelly, PE, HNTB Project Manager.
HNTB delivers engineering, planning, and program management and construction oversight for transit, bridges, roadways, highways, airports, and more to clients throughout Minnesota and the U.S.
