Nelson\Nygaard provides a full range of transportation planning and traffic engineering services. We design transportation systems, evaluate operations, prepare travel demand forecasts, and develop trip reduction strategies to support our clients’ efforts to build better communities and maximize mobility.
Our staff has expertise in traffic operations analyses using SYNCRHO and TRAFFIX software to evaluate signal operations, determine vehicle and person delay, and assess level of service (based on both HCM and multi-modal LOS thresholds). This includes operational studies conducted for citywide plans, large-scale development efforts, and impact studies, as well as operational studies conducted for the purpose of testing and refining potential street and corridor design concepts.
Our travel demand forecasts employ up-to-date research and methodologies to accurately predict future traffic volumes, using tools such as URBEMIS and Direct Ridership Transit Forecasts to develop forecasts that accurately reflect the location, design and mix of land uses.
Our traffic operations and travel demand forecasting services include:
- GIS & Spatial Analysis
- Parking Demand
- Traffic Impact Studies
- Trip Generation Forecasts
- Transit Direct Ridership Forecasts
