Ensuring safe and efficient mobility for all roadway users

Traffic and safety analyses are the backbone of all projects, as these analyses drive the design layout, how traffic will travel through the project area, and how future growth plans can be accommodated.  The goal is to identify feasible mitigation to minimize impacts to the community while enhancing traffic mobility and safety for all users. Examining the link between land use, traffic forecasting and operational traffic analysis is necessary in the planning process to understand the impact of a project on the transportation system. Traffic analysis is critical to show that future traffic patterns work in concert with the adjacent road networks in terms of the overall master plan, long range traffic growth, and traffic distribution. Our traffic and transportation engineering experts use the latest traffic analysis software such as HCS, SYNCHRO, and VISSIM to analyze and evaluate existing conditions, identify problems and impacts, and provide recommendations for appropriate countermeasures to mitigate identified network deficiencies.
