Muscatine is seeking to improve the connectivity of its transportation and recreation infrastructure, including biking and walking trails, sidewalks, roads and bus routes. Students developed a connectivity master plan that evaluated current infrastructure and created a plan for better connectivity between walking and biking trails, sidewalks, streets, bus routes and major points of interest in Muscatine. Students produced a map of locations based on points of interest ranked by city officials and community members, as well as an implementation plan that addresses connectivity paths based on priority. Students engaged the Muscatine community by creating a channel for Muscatine on the Junaio app, where individuals could take a 360 degree tour of Muscatine's points of interest from a smartphone or tablet.
