Traffic & Safety Engineering

All transportation agencies strive to ensure the safe, efficient movement of people, freight, and goods. We bring knowledge of the most current policies and procedures and apply the latest integrated approaches and technologies to plan, design, and deliver you effective traffic solutions. We help you manage today’s congestion and prepare for future mobility needs – from pedestrian and bicycle paths to major freeways – across the U.S. and abroad.

Our Expertise

Traffic and Safety
We are highly skilled in travel forecasting, traffic impact and safety studies, sidewalk feasibility studies, and road safety audits to uncover safety and operational problems that put travelers and pedestrians at risk. We use the latest analysis tools, including 3-D traffic modeling, and conduct corridor studies to reduce travel delay and emissions using low-cost signal timing and new technologies.  

Freeway and Arterial Management
With extensive experience in planning, designing, integrating, and managing the construction of freeway and arterial management systems, our team is actively leading transportation systems management and operations (TSM&O), an integrated approach to managing congestion and improving mobility. We also plan and design integrated corridor management (ICM) systems. 

Traffic Signal Systems 
Our team of traffic engineers, professional traffic operations engineers, and IMSA-certified traffic signal technicians have planned, designed, installed, and inspected traffic signal systems for hundreds of intersections throughout the U.S. We handle a range of wireline and wireless communication technologies. We use the latest software to develop signal timing plans and evaluate them at our in-office lab to ensure smooth field implementation. 

Freight Operations
We have diverse experience creating solutions to maximize efficient freight movement. We develop and deploy vehicle tracking and freight management systems and information systems to enable you to continually collect, analyze, and maintain data on freight movement and systematically identify key linkages, balances, and operational information.

Most importantly, we engage with the commercial vehicle community. Our understanding of goods movement, trucking operations, hours-of-service requirements, and truck parking needs, coupled with our specialized ITS experience, allows us to effectively assist numerous industry associations and advance freight-related knowledge. 

Road Weather Management
Adverse weather is one of the leading causes of congestion in the U.S. We work with you to plan and design road weather incident management plans, weather-related incident management plans, and software solutions tailored to reduce congestion and make travel safer.
