To accommodate the growing demand for commuter space, the reconstruction of the I-35W/CSAH 52 Interchange in Anoka County included the design of an 826 stall park and ride facility. TKDA provided design services for the facility located on the northwest quadrant of the interchange.
Recognizing the park and ride facility as an integral part of the interchange project TKDA recommended a slip ramp in the design. This was the first use of a slip ramp in Minnesota, allowing buses onto the southbound I-35W ramp directly from the passenger pick-up/drop-off area. TKDA also prepared additional plans to add 105 parking spaces to the facility.
