Apple Valley Transit Station Structural Design

Apple Valley, Minnesota

SRF teamed with a local architect to design the Apple Valley Transit Station and two transit stops for the implementation of bus rapid transit (BRT) service along Cedar Avenue in Apple Valley. The transit station and station stops are key components in the next generation of transit along the Cedar Avenue corridor. Located north of 155th Street, the transit station includes:

  • Northbound and southbound stations connected by a 150-foot-long pedestrian skyway over Cedar Avenue
  • A three-level post-tensioned concrete parking ramp
  • Surface lots that provide 950 stalls

SRF designed the ramp structure with the flexibility to accommodate two additional levels (350 stalls) in the future. Stations located at 140th Street and 147th Street include northbound and southbound stations connected by a pedestrian skyway. SRF also provided construction administration and oversight of the Apple Valley Transit Station. This project was funded, in part, by federal Urban Partnership Agreement funds, which were contingent on the transit station being operational by a certain date. SRF worked closely with the owner and contractor to ensure that construction progressed in a timely and efficient manner and the station opened on time.
