Jackson Street Reconstruction
Saint Paul, MN
Toole Design led the design and engineering of Jackson Street to achieve the City’s goals of making biking and walking in the downtown area accessible and comfortable for all users.
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. This project included full roadway reconstruction from building face to building face and the first segment of the Capital City Bikeway and separated pedestrian facility. We included lush landscaping, areas for congregation, shade trees, and native plants that create a parklike setting and an inviting, comfortable experience for users.
We took the project from concept to final construction plans during an accelerated, nine-month schedule. The resulting project sets the standard for innovative green streets, bikeway design, storm water management, placemaking, public art, and wayfinding.

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
