Active transportation planning and design are about more than providing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. It’s about building safe, efficient, and attractive multimodal networks for users of all ages and physical abilities. From promoting health and fitness to reducing traffic congestion and environmental impact, multimodal transportation is vital to community well-being and sustainability.
Focusing on complete streets concepts, ADA compliance, and user comfort, we create active transportation networks that encourage and support equitable mobility.
Ample sidewalk widths, bike lanes, and streetscapes can be integrated within a motorized transportation network to create an easily navigable community for all modes of transportation.
After assessing your current infrastructure, we’ll analyze existing and future land use and traffic operations, identify areas for improvement, and create strategic solutions for multimodal accommodation.
Through careful planning and community engagement, facilities for bicyclists, pedestrians, and individuals with mobility challenges can be safely and effectively implemented.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning
We can help determine efficient routes and select the appropriate facility to streamline safe and comfortable non-motorized travel.
Safety is the number one concern when multiple modes of transportation meet. Utilizing years of experience, we provide intersection designs that are intuitive for users to navigate with confidence.
Multi-use Trails & Sidepaths
Having accomplished over 300 miles of trails and sidepaths, we’ve developed keen insight into how they complement on-street accommodations and provide unique cycling experiences.
We identify wayfinding needs and develop signage systems for a user-friendly navigation experience. Signs including network maps, destinations, distance, and estimated travel time encourage additional and longer biking or walking trips.
Destination facilities are an essential element of active transportation networks. Our bicycle parking design services target locations that are close to building entrances, visible from inside, and protected from the weather. The bike racks we use range from simple and functional to creative and unique without sacrificing bike support or the ability to lock through a wheel and frame.
