Visual Quality Manual
The purpose of the Visual Quality Manual (VQM) is to establish visual quality requirements for the I-35W-Lake Street Transit/Access Project and for the freeway and bridges located north and south of the Transit/Access Project. The components of the planned projects include construction or rehabilitation of roadway, transit station facilities, and supporting elements as described as described in more detail throughout the document.
The VQM focuses on the aesthetic design intent and requirements for the I-35W Improvements project including the multi-level transit station at Lake Street and all project elements between 43rd Street and I-94.
This document summarizes the expectations of project agency partners and advisory committee members for creating attractive, save, convenient, durable and highly accessible multimodal transportation facilities and services within the project area.
