Traffic Studies & Traffic System Designs
Traffic engineering is a specialized discipline that involves designing infrastructure to move and direct people along their desired routes — safely, cost-efficiently, and with minimal wait times and inconveniences. KS Associates has on staff Professional Engineers who are ODOT pre-qualified specialists in this discipline.
KS Associates’ Traffic Engineering team is particularly beneficial during construction, in developing Maintenance of Traffic Plans for temporary lane closures, staged construction, or detours. Sound Traffic Engineering is paramount for infrastructure improvements that will permanently affect how members of the community travel and move about.
