Our nation’s roadways are critical assets that connect communities and drive commerce. State and local agencies face many challenges as infrastructure ages, mobility increases and budgets decline. From complex urban freeways to two-lane rural roadways, Burgess & Niple examines projects from every angle, providing innovative solutions that help clients reduce costs and attain the vision they have for their community.
Our engineers use practical design methods to identify modifications that minimize project costs while maintaining safety and improving traffic flow. This approach has saved our clients millions of dollars, improved the quality of their transportation system, stretched their capital improvements program, and reduced their ongoing operation and maintenance costs.
B&N designs with the environment in mind. From stormwater treatment methods that decrease water pollution to multi-modal designs that ease traffic congestion and the associated air pollution, we look for ways to reduce impacts on our natural resources.
Clear, open and ongoing communication is an important part of every project we undertake. Our clients stay engaged through routine check-ins and consultation to help ensure their expectations are met. For potentially controversial or sensitive projects, B&N plans and facilitates comprehensive public involvement programs that engage project stakeholders, increase public support, and keep our clients’ projects moving forward.
B&N’s transportation experts design solutions at the forefront of innovation. This includes the first Diverging Diamond Interchanges (DDIs) in Ohio and Indiana, the first modern Roundabout in Ohio and the first Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) in Ohio.
Watch how the Indiana’s first DDI increases traffic capacity, lowers estimated project costs and includes a barrier-separated median for pedestrians. (Learn more/play button with link to video). Learn more
