Toole Design Group is the lead consultant to the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) on their CDC-funded effort to promote active transportation throughout Ohio. This multi-disciplinary approach is focused on 23 counties that have been identified based on health indicators and income disparities. The project involves a broad suite of efforts linking health and transportation outcomes, and includes close coordination with the Ohio Department of Transportation.
Toole Design Group provides statewide bicycle and pedestrian planning and design work for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). This includes a range of tasks, including drafting active transportation policy, developing safe routes to school plans, providing technical assistance on design projects, and coordinating and delivering statewide education and training on active transportation.
TDG prepared the award-winning MassDOT Separated Bike Lane Planning and Design Guide. Separated bike lanes are a key component of safe, comfortable, and connected low-stress bike networks that will attract more people of all ages and ability to bicycling. The extensively illustrated Guide breaks new ground with innovative design solutions for safety features such as protected intersections to minimize motor vehicle/bike conflicts as well as detailed guidance on traffic signals covering signal placement, timing, phasing and operations.
TDG is leading the first downtown project funded by a new local bond initiative called the 8-80 Vitality Initiative, the Capital City Bikeway and Jackson Street Reconstruction Project. TDG is leading the streetscape design and engineering for this key corridor from conceptual design through construction documentation. The separated bike lane along Jackson Street will be the first of its kind in Minnesota. Click here to visit the project web site.
