2nd Street SW, which runs through the heart of Rochester, Minnesota, past the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, had experienced an increase in vehicle, pedestrian and bus traffic. The thoroughfare had to be redesigned to better accommodate all modes of traffic, while improving visual appeal and pedestrian amenities.
A complete reconstruction of 2nd Street introduced five new bus shelters, an enhanced streetscape with better lighting, and unique stormwater applications making it a more welcoming, vibrant and connected place.
