A few examples of our work
We have successfully completed projects and studies of all sizes in both lead and subconsultant roles. This includes assignments ranging from municipal traffic and parking to major travel corridors spanning multiple jurisdictions and requiring environmental documentation to secure federal and state funding. We take great pride in helping our clients plan, design, and implement their goals. The projects showcased here are only a few that we’ve completed within our six major service areas.
Transportation Planning & Environmental Documentation
WIS 64 Freeway/Expressway Designation and Conversion Study
WIS 64 between Houlton and New Richmond is part of the National Highway System and was recently constructed as a four-lane facility. This project will officially declare a nine mile portion of the corridor as a Freeway under Wisconsin State Statute 84.295. The remaining three miles will be declared as an expressway. Services provided as part of the project include development of alternatives to address local road connections and to provide access and circulation to existing interchanges. In addition, an official map will be prepared to preserve right-of-way needed to implement the preferred alternative when safety and operations warrant construction. Other activities include preparation of an Environmental Assessment to evaluate potential effects of alternatives. The study includes public involvement in the form of public and local official meetings, agency and stakeholder coordination, newsletters, and may require a formal public hearing as part of the environmental requirements and Wis. Stats. 84.295.
US 14 Corridor Study (East)
This study completed an access management plan and operational review of the USH 14 Corridor, between the village of Mazomanie and the city of Middleton, in Dane County, WI and developed strategies and recommendations designed to identify the operational deficiencies and environmental constraints within the USH 14 corridor. A main purpose of the study was to outline effective options to preserve the long-term function, operations, and safety along this state highway and its connections with the local roadway network. The study also gathered data relating to traffic volumes, documented the key environmental issues and features within the study corridor, evaluate impacts of local land use development scenarios on USH 14, documented existing and future traffic operation within the corridor, and conducted public involvement activities. Public involvement activities included informational presentations on land use, access management, and local road issues. Study recommendations include potential roadway improvements, operational strategies, and access managment plan for local roadway connections and private access points to USH 14, and addressed a number of potential multi-modal aspects being discussed for inclusion as transportation options within the corridor (i.e. Park and Ride, commuter rail, bus/transit, and multi-use trail)
SW Region Park-And-Ride Study
TranSmart Technologies, Inc. is the lead firm for this study of park-and-ride facilities and needs for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region. The focus of the study is to develop a region-wide system plan which will provide a framework for locating and improving park-and-ride facilities that serve anticipated travel needs within the 16-county region. TranSmart is leading a multidisciplinary team of specialists with expertise in travel-demand modeling, bus transit planning, car and van pooling, geographic information systems, website, and customized surveys to deliver an update of a previous study. TranSmart is also managing and facilitating a workshop and several local officials and stakeholder meetings to gather input and feedback for incorporation into the study findings and regional park-and-ride system plan.
