When Metro Transit needed to accommodate bus route changes at the onset of the new Green Line Light Rail Transit operations, TKDA was there to help with the renovation and expansion of bus passenger waiting facilities at the 3 highest volume bus stops in Downtown Saint Paul. Just a few steps from TKDA’s office, team members were often on site to observe construction and coordinate planning efforts.
The final product needed to facilitate circulation and improve accessibility, signage, safety and security. TKDA helped achieve these goals by replacing and relocating exterior transit shelters, renovating interior waiting lobby space, streetscaping and improving traffic management and sidewalks. TKDA provided coordination with stakeholders, City of Saint Paul staff, and Metro Transit planning, facilities engineering, maintenance and security and the many adjacent building property owners.
