TH 87 Urban Complete Streets Reconstruction

Frazee, MN
Project Overview

This Complete Streets project includes a 1.5-mile reconstruction of TH 87 in Frazee, Minnesota to accommodate a shared-use path, walk, parking, driving lanes, and ADA-compliant design improvements.

Our Work

Running through the heart of Frazee, MN, the TH 87 construction project has a significant impact on daily life in the small community. The overall success of the project was highly dependent on the community’s involvement in the preliminary design and decision process. Based on the project requirements from MnDOT, Isthmus developed three alternative design options to propose for the urban reconstruction.

Our team developed immersive visualizations which included renderings of each segment’s alternatives, 3D photospheres, and a video fly-through which were successfully used to inform the public and stakeholders of the potential options and impacts, receive feedback, and move the project forward. An internal Isthmus-developed process allowed for these visualizations to be updated with little additional effort as the design work progressed. In addition to informing the public and stakeholders they proved useful to the project team as well, helping to identify potentially costly conflicts between various aspects of the proposed design.
