Southbridge Crossings Transit Station - Traveler Information, and Security Systems

SRF Consulting Group, Inc., in cooperation with Scott County, designed a transit station that provides Scott County residents with a new commuting option to downtown Minneapolis. Working with Scott County and other local agencies, SRF designed the bus park-and-ride station to sensitively fit into a developing commercial and residential area. Located near TH 169 and CSAH 18, the station is comprised of several main functions: a bus turn-around and drop-off area, a passenger waiting area with shelters, a 550-car surface parking lot, and an access road with walks. The ITS elements of this project include: · A traveler information system designed to continuously count the lot capacity and inform approaching vehicles of parking space availability in the lot with real-time information. · A wireless telemetry system. · Changeable message signs incorporated into decorative landscape monuments. · A six-camera security system with on-site digital video recording. The project was awarded “2007 Project of the Year” by the Association of Minnesota Counties.
