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:

Interstate 394 Commuter Patterns.

Minnesota 3-D.

This project was completed in support of a project currently being conducted by the Center for Changing Landscapes at the University of Minnesota. M3D data were used to produce maps of the commutesheds (where people living in a given area travel to work) and laborsheds (where people who work in a given area travel from to work) for the combined areas of Minneapolis suburbs Wayzata, Minnetonka, St. Louis Park, and Golden Valley. These maps were then used to represent how many residents of these communities might use I-394 to travel to their place of employment. Data indicate that approximately 8,000 employed persons living in the cities of Wayzata, Minnetonka, St. Louis Pak and Golden Valley travel to downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul to work. These workers are most likely using I-394 as their primary transportation route. More than 13,000 Minneapolis residents work in the four suburbs, and a large percentage are most likely using I-394 to commute to their jobs. In addition, the data show that a number of commuters working and living within the designated four city area may be using I-394 for other shorter trips.
