Capitol Corridor

East Lansing Charrette Builds on Vision for BRT

Last week, Dover-Kohl participated in a weeklong charrette in East Lansing, MI to develop a plan for Bus-Rapid Transit on the Michigan Avenue / Grand River Avenue corridor. The East Lansing Charrette builds on The Capitol Corridor vision to create a better, more cohesive corridor from the Capitol to Meridian. During the Kick-off and Hands-on Design Session, over 60 community members gathered around tables to create new street sections and draw their thoughts for the area. Throughout the week designers, engineers, and planners continued the work in an open design studio which allowed people to stop by and bring new ideas to the table as well as witness the progress.

The week finished with a Work-in-Progress presentation on Sunday, March 23rd that highlighted the details of the emerging plan. The planning effort is being led by the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA), through Mead & Hunt; Dover, Kohl & Partners; Kimley-Horn & Associates; and Cambridge Systematics.

Capitol Corridor Plan Adopted by Tri-County Regional Planning Commision

On Febuary 26, 2014 The Capitol Corridor plan was presented to a formal meeting of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commision that voted to accept the report on the spot. Following a year-long process working under the leadership of the National Charrette Institute (NCI), Dover-Kohl led two 7-8 day charrettes along the Michigan Avenue / Grand River Avenue corridor that provided the opportunity for an in-depth community conversation about the future urban form of the corridor, and produced a consensus-based vision for urban design, land use, transportation, and economic development.
