Traffic Studies & Analysis

JMT conducts a wide variety of traffic studies, leading to safer roadways and improved traffic and transit operations. Crash studies assist in reducing the potential for collisions and provide a safer environment for pedestrians and bicyclists. Operations studies are conducted to improve travel in a corridor or area, often through the use of modeling tools.

JMT analyzes existing and projected traffic volumes to determine the adequacy of existing operations and to evaluate if proposed improvements would resolve deficiencies. Various analysis packages, including VISSIM, CORSIM, SIDRA/Intersection, SYNCHRO, and Highway Capacity Manual Software, are utilized in the analysis and can range from signal timing to evaluating future improvements. Travel time studies are performed to validate the models using GPS equipment.
