Transportation

Environmental Partners Group has a team of highly experienced transportation engineers accustomed to effectively addressing a wide range of transportation challenges. From designs to studies to inventories, we provide our public and private sector clients with solutions that are consistent with ever-changing demands and regulations. It is our mission to act in partnership with our clients to assist them in addressing their needs throughout the entire project process from inception, funding, public outreach, and through construction.

We recognize each transportation project has a unique set of objectives that requires a customized approach. Whether the intent is to maximize traffic flow through a heavily travelled urban network, or to discourage or calm cut-through traffic on a local residential roadway, or to provide improvements in a historic town center, our team remains sensitive to the character of the location in identifying multi-faceted solutions that work for vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit alike.

TRAFFIC ENGINEERING

At Environmental Partners, we recognize that all great transportation projects begin with a comprehensive evaluation of existing conditions in order to create a design that will effectively address all issues for years to come. Whether a simple intersection project, a corridor study, or a roadway grid, our team researches fluxuations in traffic and crashes using historic data and reports from a variety of sources, as well as interviews from local officials and the public for input to consider in the design. It is this comprehensive evaluation that provides a solid basis for any design.

Environmental Partners staff has worked on both sides of the table for private development projects, experienced in preparing Traffic Impact and Access Studies and designing mitigation on behalf of the developer as well as performing peer reviews on the behalf of the municipality. Our staff is well seasoned and experienced with both large scale development and small residental development projects to ensure accurate impacts on local and regional infrastructure are identified and the appropriate mitigation is provided.complete street 2

HIGHWAY ENGINEERING

Environmental Partners’ designs balance multi-modal transportation improvements with minimizing impacts to the surrounding community including right-of-way, environmental restrictions, transitions to the surroundings, and aesthetics. Design experience includes geometric reconfigurations, traffic signal installations, traffic calming (roundabouts, raised tables, bump-outs, etc.), ADA compliant pedestrian accommodations, bicycle accommodations (lanes, cycle tracks, etc.), drainage, signs, pavement markings, and streetscaping.

Environmental Partners is intimately familiar with adapting existing roadway facilities to not only accommodate current vehicular demand but also for other users such as pedestrians, bicyclists and transit in keeping with MassDOT’s Healthy Transportation Policy. Our team has a long history of successfully incorporating Complete Streets and Healthy Transportation Policy initiatives into the most congested of locations with limited right of way, grading issues, and environmental constraints.

ASSET MANAGEMENT

Municipalities continue to be faced with the responsibility of addressing their aging infrastructure in order to provide safe accommodations for the public with limited funds. At Environmental Partners, we assist in providing inventories that allow them to prioritize improvements and get the most out of their limited budget. Each inventory takes a multi-faceted look at several components in order to provide useful output in a user-friendly format, essential in the planning of future improvements.

In addition, mandates have been issued by the Federal Highway Administration for things such as sign retroreflectivity, which if ignored, could leave municipalities susceptible to tort liability through litigation. Also the common practice of installing speed limit signs without the proper procedure through MassDOT results in them being unenforceable and could impact Chapter 90 funding. Cost effective inventories are provided to not only fulfil these requirements, but to assess the validity of the sign including compliance to industry standards and local ordinance to avoid the cost of unnecessarily replacing signs and to reduce sign clutter.
