Destination Medical Center Transportation and Infrastructure Program Management

Rochester, Minnesota

With the creation of the Destination Medical Center (DMC) vision for Downtown Rochester, the City of Rochester is poised to enhance their standing as a world-class destination for medical services and research. In response to the DMC plan, development activity is increasing, with expansion of existing Mayo Clinic facilities along with multiple private development projects. This development trend is anticipated to increase over the next 20 years to meet the demands of a growing downtown.

To facilitate and support anticipated new development, the City needs to plan and construct significant public infrastructure improvements. SRF is serving as the Program Management Consultant (PMC) to assist the City in moving these vital public PMC projects forward. Our initial program management efforts  focused on the selection and management of significant DMC infrastructure planning studies that included:

  • Street use, character and operations planning
  • High-amenity pedestrian and bicycle pathway routing
  • Transit strategy development and routes
  • Travel demand management approaches
  • Transportation management association implementation
  • Bicycle network prototyping and implementation
  • Parking strategies

A key focus of these studies is to transform DMC streets into vibrant, comfortable, and safe pedestrian-oriented “places” that seamlessly integrate transit, walking, and bicycling, and motor vehicles in a manner that supports new development and achieves a dynamic downtown environment for both visitors and residents alike.
