Jackson Street Reconstruction
Saint Paul, MN
When you design a corridor from the outside in, there’s infinite possibility for creating a comfortable, multimodal space that accommodates all users. Jackson Street in downtown Saint Paul included the first grade-separated protected bikeway in the State of Minnesota when we cut the ribbon in 2016, and is a shining example of Toole Design’s approach, values, and engineering skills on roadway reconstruction projects.
Our staff helped the City of Saint Paul capitalize on a utility replacement project, taking a new approach to street design from concept through construction. Featuring an innovative green infrastructure solution to drainage and stormwater management, a truly multimodal approach for traffic engineering and operations, and a completely new standard for the public realm, Jackson Street is the first constructed corridor in Saint Paul’s Capital City Bikeway, a planned network of downtown streets that work for everyone.

The new streets, bike lanes, and other public investments are a vast improvement over what was there before and collectively make Custom House that much more attractive and functional.Jim SolpestadLocal Developer
Jackson Street is the first all-ages, all-abilities bikeway to be constructed from the Capital City Bikeway plan. Toole Design staff led this project from master plan to construction administration. and were involved in every detail of this corridor, including streetscape design, plantings, drainage and stormwater management, and traffic engineering and operations.
