School districts and private elementary, middle and high schools realize the importance of safe and efficient traffic flow for automobiles, busses, bikes and pedestrians to/from and around the school during the peak 20 minute arrival period and peak dismissal period. Colleges and Universities have different traffic issues where parking is many times an issue along a mix of internal vehicle movements coupled with safe and efficient pedestrian facilities.
TADI has been involved with the planning and design of new schools along with analyzing and recommending safety and circulation improvements for existing schools, Colleges and Universities. A significant part of a successful circulation pattern for both vehicles and pedestrians is understanding the dynamics of each individual school. Our team spends time to analyze the current conditions and to meet with school officials and communities to understand each specific situation, the project goals, and developing a successful traffic operations plan for both vehicles and pedestrians. Detailed data collection, stake-holder communication, expert analysis and modeling, safety analysis and parking analysis are what you can expect from TADI’s school studies service line.
