Traffic

Let’s make the community’s commute easier. Our goal is to help relieve traffic congestion through proactive engineering and problem solving.  

Traffic Studies

We develop improvements to suit your needs, from “quick-fix, low-cost” to long-term solutions. Our studies experts can help you meet today’s needs while planning for tomorrow.

 

Our traffic study services include:

  • Data collection
  • Bicycle and pedestrian studies
  • Safety investigations and studies
  • Concept development
  • Complete streets
  • Circulation studies
  • Traffic impact studies/assessments
  • Feasibility assessment
  • Funding and implementation strategies
  • Alternative analysis
  • Pedestrian and road safety audits

Traffic Analysis and Simulation Modeling

We’ve helped develop today’s simulation modeling, so we know all the angles…and curves and straight-aways. Through innovative traffic analysis and simulations modeling, we take a cutting-edge approach to traffic simulation.

 

Our traffic analysis and simulation modeling services include:

  • Highway capacity software (HCS)
  • Synchro and SimTraffic
  • CORSIM/TSIS
  • VISSIM
  • aaSIDRA
  • TruTraffic
  • 3D Visualization

Design

Before we design, we comply. Our in-house designs integrate national standards, regional priorities, accepted practices, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. From signal design to signing and pavement markings, our designs are checked thoroughly to minimize surprises.

 

Our traffic design services include:

  • Traffic signal design
  • Signing and striping plans
  • Maintenance of traffic
  • Construction details
  • Traffic calming
  • Lighting design
  • Pedestrian accommodations
  • ADA/curb ramp design and compliance
  • Roundabouts

Intelligent Transportation Systems

We want to keep travelers informed and help them make safer decisions while traveling.  To do this, we have harnessed the power of ITS systems to design interactive Traffic Operation Centers that serve as home bases for evaluation, modification, and reaction to ever-changing traffic patterns.

 

Our intelligent transportation systems (ITS) services include:

  • Traffic operation centers
  • VMS/DMS signs
  • Systems engineering analysis
  • Adaptive signal technologies
  • CCTV
  • Bluetooth device implementation
  • Transit signal priority
  • Ramp metering
  • Concept of operations reports
  • ITS architecture
  • Highway advisory radio
  • Interconnection/Intercommunication plans
  • Overhead vehicle detection

Lighting Design

Well-designed lighting can improve safety, efficiency, and the aesthetics of roadways. Through the use of the latest tools, standards, and approved photometric information, we design lighting to serve the needs of drivers, bikers, and walkers. Thorough knowledge of lighting design is a must, as too much light, inconsistent light, or improperly distributed light can adversely affect visibility, making a late night drive all the more frustrating.

 

Our traffic lighting design services include:

  • Roadway lighting
    • Intersections
    • Corridors
    • Interchanges
    • Roundabouts
  • Streetscape and pedestrian lighting
  • Parking facilities lighting
  • Bridge lighting
  • Trail and path lighting
  • Lighting safety studies and evaluations
