Gresham, Smith and Partners was recently selected by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to provide 30 traffic engineering safety studies in support of access management improvements throughout District 7. GS&P’s team will analyze traffic operations and crashes involving vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and public transit at median openings and driveways in District 7. Results of the studies will guide the future development and implementation of traffic solutions including signals, turn lanes, medians and speed adjustments.
“Our experienced team understands the impact of population growth on traffic flow and safety in Tampa and nearby cities,” said Jay Bockisch, P.E., senior transportation engineer at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “As congestion increases, entering and exiting roadways becomes more of a challenge for users of all types. It’s our job to identify areas of concern so that appropriate solutions can be developed. We look forward to working with FDOT on these important studies that have great potential to improve safety and quality of life throughout District 7.”
GS&P’s studies include: crash and safety analysis, trip generation studies, traffic impact study review, traffic signal warrant analyses, intersection delay analyses, corridor analysis, crash analyses, intersection operation assessments and related efforts. GS&P is also leading Access Management Permit workshops for FDOT, local agencies and consultants.
