The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Minnesota 3-D Analysis of Commuting Patterns around University Avenue.

Minnesota 3-D.

This project involved an analysis to help inform commute patterns surrounding University Avenue. With the potential for substantial transportation development in the form of the proposed Central Corridor light-rail transit (LRT), University Avenue neighbors strive to anticipate its potential impacts on businesses, residents, and neighborhoods. Maps were created representing where University Avenue workers are traveling from to their place of employment. Additional maps represent where residents within a one-quarter-mile radius of proposed Central Corridor LRT Stations travel to work. Additional maps attempt to represent future redevelopment potential surrounding University Avenue along with potential implications of the proposed Central Corridor LRT. According to the figures compiled using M3D data, a large number of University Avenue employees live in St. Paul or the eastern portion of the Twin Cities Metro. When focusing in on Minneapolis and St. Paul 2000 US Census tract areas, the data show that a large portion of University Avenue workers live in the neighborhoods surrounding the University of Minnesota campus and downtown St. Paul.
