Traffic Engineering

The safe and efficient movement of people and goods is critical in today’s society. B&N helps clients develop and implement solutions that optimize mobility within their communities while balancing other needs. We understand that the transportation system is an intricate web of freeways, highways, streets, bikeways, sidewalks, and transit routes. We work closely with clients to develop complete solutions that address their immediate concerns and long-term goals.

Practical Experience

Our dedicated traffic engineering team has decades of experience delivering solutions for projects of all sizes and scopes. We support our clients through the lifecycle of a project. This includes developing traffic forecasts and analyzing and designing all types of transportation systems - from freeways and urban streets to pedestrian, bicycle, and transit facilities. Our expertise also includes Active Traffic Management solutions, ITS infrastructure, and the related traffic control devices and systems.

Our broad client base consists of states, cities, counties, MPOs, and private entities. This provides us with a comprehensive understanding of traffic issues and the ability to effectively communicate with multiple agencies at the same time. We also can help clients source funding to design and build infrastructure improvements.

Leading Edge

B&N’s staff of dedicated traffic engineers uses the latest research, methods, and technology to evaluate crash and congestion problems and develop countermeasures for a wide range of facilities. In addition, our advanced traffic modeling expertise helps stakeholders visualize proposed changes before investing the resources needed to design and build improvements.
