|Creative Thinking... Thoughtful Solutions|
Collaborative Design Group was selected by the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority to design the Apple Valley Transit Station and two subordinate transit stops for the implementation of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service along Cedar Avenue, key components in the next generation of transit along the corridor.
The sweeping roof, evocative of the landform of the City, and the exuberant skyway (the first in Apple Valley), create a memorable landmark in this busy commercial area. The station, platform, and ramp are designed to accommodate expansion.
The Station is located north of 155th Street and includes northbound and southbound stations, connected by a pedestrian skyway over Cedar Avenue. A parking ramp and surface parking lot located on the east side of Cedar Avenue provide 750 parking stalls. Additional stations located at 147th Street and 140th Street include similar, smaller component stations connected by pedestrian skyways.
CDG collaborated with SRF, and worked in conjunction with the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority, the City of Apple Valley, Dakota County, the Metropolitan Council, Metro Transit, and the Dakota County Regional Rail Authority on this complex project.
