TRAFFIC

By planning welcoming places that increase mobility and access, we can forge lasting community partnerships with common values of neighborhood preservation and restoration while working diligently towards new options for addressing traffic congestion. CFS evaluates traffic conditions with regards to speed, level-of-service, crashes, and projected land use utilizing the latest in data gathering and modeling technology to provide safe and effective transportation solutions. Our Traffic Engineering Department offers design expertise for access management, safe routes to schools, traffic calming, traffic signals, roundabouts, ITS installation, traffic noise barriers, railroads crossings, ADA inspection and ADA access, and fiber connectivity.

PROJECTS

Transportation Crash Analysis & Countermeasure Identification | 

Douglas County, Kansas

The goal of the study was to compile a current geodatabase that identifies locations with high traffic crash records for Lawrence and Douglas County, Kansas. “Hot spot” locations were prioritized in regards to a set of defined location variables and recommendations were made for cost-efficient crash countermeasures for the locations. Twelve total road safety audits were performed with half in the urban setting and half in the rural setting. The outcome of this effort was a list of recommended projects with specific and implementable improvements to roadway segments and intersections with supplemental cost estimation for funding applications. A list of possible crash countermeasures was compiled for each safety audit site to reduce the number of crashes.

Bonner Crossing Traffic Analysis & Safety Report | Bonner Springs, Kansas

The Bonner Crossing development will include residential land uses (multi-family, senior living, and assisted care), commercial land uses (medical offices, hotels, restaurants, and retail), and the Velocity performing arts and entertainment development. This development created major trip volumes during event times that required this detailed traffic analysis to be completed. CFS analyzed the highway access, interchange safety, traffic control on the adjacent major highways including I-70, I-435, US-73/K-7, and US-24, deployment of ITS, and access management. A major population center trip routing pattern was developed so the effect of event trips on highway facilities could be analyzed for potential safety concerns.

Wheatfield Village Public Improvements | Topeka, Kansas

The project included public infrastructure improvements including intersection improvements at 29th & Fairlawn. Upgrades will include dedicated dual turning movements and improved pedestrian facilities.
