TRANSPORTATION ASSESSMENT

Top

The new environmental review (CEQA) process is mandated by requirements of the State of California Senate Bill 743 (SB 743). In general, the new guidelines for evaluating transportation impacts no longer focus on measuring automobile delay and level of service (LOS). Our comprehensive transportation assessments include both CEQA and Non-CEQA analysis. The type of study needed is determined according the local jurisdictions requirements. Evaluation of potential public policy, work and household Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) impacts are conducted under the CEQA Evaluation with appropriate Transportation Demand Management (TDM) mitigation measures determined to reduce significant impacts, if needed.

PARKING STUDIES

Top

One service that we offer is an analysis of peak parking demand based on the time of day shared parking. After estimating the peak hour parking demand using a shared parking demand model created for the project, we use parking strategies, shared parking opportunities, and alternative measures to satisfy the project parking demand according to applicable city ordinances, codes and the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) parking rates.

TRAFFIC SIGNAL WARRANT ANALYSIS

Top

We conduct traffic signal warrant analysis at unsignalized intersections using State of California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) warrants including graphics, speed data, accident information, and traffic and pedestrian counts, such that the documents and report are suitable for submission to the local jurisdiction.

INTERSECTION DESIGN

Top

We evaluate traffic surrounding the project site to enchance traffic flow, reduce delay and improve safe access to and from the project site.

QUEUE ANALYSIS

Top

In order to assure the safety of motorists and pedestrians, minimizing vehicle delays at security gates and loading / unloading zones is essential. We analyze potential delays caused by the traffic flow and provide solutions that facilitate traffic movement.

ACCESS & CIRCULATION ANALYSIS

Top

Non-CEQA evaluations are conducted to evaluate project traffic impacts on surrounding roadways, transit services, pedestrian and bicycle movememts.

TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT

Top

Transporation Demand Management reports are prepared to identify project opportunities and incentives to reduce traffic by ridesharing, bicycling, walking and transit.
