This publication shows the work that the staff and students of the Minnesota Design Center have done to illustrate the nature of AV-ready alleys, local streets, collector streets, and arterial streets. With each street type, an overview provides the existing condition and its AV alternative, with calculations related to planting, stormwater retention, heat island effects, and material costs. There are cross-sections through each street type to indicate the below-grade conditions of AV-ready streets and how they compare to now.
