Protected Bikeways

protected bikeways program 

Leslie’s position at the City of Minneapolis Public Works was within the Transportation Planning and Programming (TPP) department. TPP focused on producing graphics, such as diagrams and renderings, for current TPP programs and compiling them into “One-Pagers,” which were short summaries of ACCESS Minneapolis initiatives. Leslie created graphics for Safe Routes to School, the Protected Bikeways Program, Pedestrian Safety, and several others. Additionally, she created new layouts for city reports assessing the progress of ACCESS Minneapolis and adding pictures to showcase certain improvement projects around the city.

Leslie enjoyed meetings with the Planning and Capital planning teams, and getting to know everyone at TPP. It was also interesting to learn about the planning process for implementing design projects and getting to further develop skills in Adobe Creative Suite.
