The HumanFIRST Laboratory is a facility of the University of Minnesota's Department of Mechanical Engineering. It is also affiliated with the Roadway Safety Institute. The HumanFIRST (Human Factors Interdisciplinary Research in Safety and Transportation) Laboratory employs the tools and methods of psychology and human factors engineering to improve scientific understanding of driver performance and cognitive functions.

The human factors studies carried out by HumanFIRST focus on understanding how humans interact with the many technologies and environmental factors that influence driving performance. Understanding these interactions is critical to ensuring that new technologies are safe as well as effective.

   Participants will take a bus to and from the lab at the University of Minnesota. Tour will include an overview of the research being conducted plus a look at the lab's new vehicle simulator including a demonstration.

MnDOT is currently undertaking the $239 million full reconstruction of I-35W just south of downtown Minneapolis, including its interchange with I-94.  Join us to see first-hand how this significant project is progressing and learn about the project’s robust public engagement efforts, traffic impacts, corresponding traffic management strategies, and transit and multi-modal elements.

Construction of the project is scheduled to take 4 years and is disrupting approximately 200,000 vpd on I-35W, 240,000 vpd on I-94, and numerous local roadways and bridges in south Minneapolis making traffic management and public communications significant elements of the project.  At the time of the tour the project will be in the midst of some of its most significant roadway and lane closures.

Key elements of this project include construction of a new MnPASS lane, construction of an in-line Bus Rapid Transit Station, improved access to the Lake Street Business District, pavement and bridge reconstruction and rehabilitation, partial reconfiguration of the I-35W / I-94 interchange, and improved accessibility and pedestrian accommodations.

This technical tour is a walking tour of Minneapolis and the ways its vibrant downtown has transformed its transportation network to truly include all modes of transportation. We will start with a stroll down the recently renovated Nicollet Mall, the longtime core shopping and entertainment artery. This third transformation of the pedestrian and transit mall focused on pedestrian-friendly features, including lots of trees, colorful chairs, and a plethora of art. Completed in 2017, just in time for Super Bowl LII, the comprehensive remodel has enhanced the mile-long pedestrian experience for visitors, workers, and residents. We will tour all five sections of Nicollet Mall and have the opportunity to take a selfie with the "Mary Tyler Moore" statue.

The tour will then review Washington Avenue and its new bike facilities also completed in 2017. A joint project between Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis reconstructed six blocks to include a five-lane roadway for motorized traffic, wide sidewalks for pedestrians, and a cycle track for bicyclists. We will walk through this corridor to review the narrow driving lanes, use of green pavement markings, and bicycle signals among other amenities. Since the full corridor is not yet complete, we will also examine the transition between the new and old sections of Washington Avenue.

Along the way, we will also see Marquette and 2nd Avenues, better known as the Marq2 transit corridor. Rebuilt in 2009 to better serve the thousands of commuters arriving by express bus each day, this one-way pair corridor has side-by-side bus only lanes and wide sidewalks. Heated waiting shelters and NexTrip real-time transit displays are also common features. 

As we continue around the City, two final spots will be the green spaces around the US Bank Stadium and the Hennepin County Government Center. Both reflect the City's commitment to public green space for respite and everyday activities whether you're a worker, visitor, or resident.

Please wear comfortable shoes and make sure to bring water and sun protection. The tour will be on generally flat city pavements, and we will cover about 3.1 miles (5 km) on foot.

Minneapolis is ranked as one of the best biking city in the country by Bike Score, it is #3 biking city by Bicycling Magazine (2014), and the #2 bicycling commuting city by the U.S. Census Bureau (2014). As of 2015, Minneapolis has 129 miles of on-street bikeways and 97 miles of off-street bikeways. The city has also been awarded with the Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community Award from the League of American Bicyclists.

Join us for an 11-mile guided bike tour of Minneapolis' significant bike network. The tour will include a vast array recreational bike trails, regional bike trails, greenways and on-road facilities that offer countless opportunities to explore and traverse the City as a recreational cyclist or as a bike commuter. The tour will include a portion of the country's first bicycle freeway (Cedar Lake Trail), the Stone Arch Bridge, a segment of the Midtown Greenway, and many of the city's most recognizable landmarks.

The route is flat and will mostly take us on dedicated bicycle lanes. Downtown Minneapolis streets are busy, however, so comfort with urban bicycle riding is recommended. Bike and helmets will be provided. Please make sure to bring water and sun protection.
