McIntosh Perry’s traffic team focuses on roadways from the user’s perspective. We firmly believe that safety and efficiency are key components to successful transportation design and operations.
From existing locations to planned subdivisions, from rural intersections to complex freeway interchanges, McIntosh Perry provides the operational input into land development, highway, and bridge engineering programs from preliminary to detail design and construction phases.
In the planning and detail design stages, our firm reviews and assesses existing conditions to seek opportunities for safety improvement. The experienced professionals at McIntosh Perry ensure an engineering-value approach is taken towards operational decisions. Traffic concerns for roads-in-service take a similar approach with safety and operational inventories reviewed for problem identification and resolution.
In construction, safety is also prioritized while maintaining efficient construction zones; separating the work and the workers from traffic hazards, and protecting traffic from construction activities. McIntosh Perry works hard to maintain traffic flows and minimize delays for motorists through construction zones by identifying the affected traffic, reviewing alternatives with network modeling software, and developing staging or detour routing to best meet public needs.
Members of our traffic engineering team have worked in the municipal and provincial highway sector, as well as the private transportation sector, and bring a wealth of experience and diverse, practical knowledge to projects. Discovering user needs for safety and efficiency, while incorporating them into our projects, is the model of success for McIntosh Perry’s traffic team.
