Project Type: Visual Quality Manual

Client: Minnesota Department of Transportation

The Visual Quality Manual (VQM) for Trunk Highway 100 reestablishes the stature of this historically significant beltway while honoring the community-defining connection between travelers and neighbors. Although primarily used to guide the design of the reconstruction of TH 100, it also was intended to serve as a reference for future work by any entity that would affect the public domain of the corridor. The design team brought their unique engagement process and creative hand to the endeavor and the result is a beautiful set of graphic guidelines and supportive content. The VQM provided aesthetic direction to the final designers for major mainline structures including bridges and noise walls and many of the features in the manual are the basis for final constructed features as seen in the corridor today.
