Multi-modal transportation planning and traffic engineering requires more than technical expertise. It requires planners and engineers to apply their expertise collaboratively, as part of a larger team that typically includes architects, economists, land use planners, urban designers and other experts.
Nelson\Nygaard designs transportation systems with an emphasis on context sensitivity. Our goal is the creation of complete streets and balanced transportation networks that maximize mobility for all users and support broader community goals. We have designed streets, paths, and transportation corridors in big cities, small towns, and overseas emirates.
Our multi-modal approach to transportation planning and traffic engineering sets us apart from our peers. This is a result of our history. While most transportation firms began with an emphasis on motor vehicle circulation, and only recently began to offer multi-modal services such as bicycle, pedestrian and transit planning, we are rooted in our history as a firm that emphasizes alternative transportation solutions. It is the core of what we do.
Our multi-modal transportation design specialties include:
