Increased traffic volumes, longer drive times, and more crashes often accompany new development and community growth. As an industry leader, our traffic engineers have the knowledge and experience needed to help avoid these challenges.
HLR is well-versed in all aspects of transportation engineering and can identify traffic issues quickly and create design solutions that promote safety and efficiency. Our traffic engineers are licensed in Illinois, Professional Traffic Operations Engineers (PTOE), and certified by the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA) to design, test, and program traffic signal controllers. We have expertise in a wide range of studies, major data collection efforts, traffic calming, planning and feasibility studies, signal design, and signal coordination and timing (SCAT). Over the past 15 years, this specialized knowledge has allowed us to complete thousands of individual studies and designs, providing traffic engineering support for major transportation projects.
We use the latest technical methods and software in our industry including a variety of traffic analysis and simulation software applications including Synchro, HCS, and SIDRA, maintaining the latest version of each program. We also utilize traffic signal monitoring software including Centracs, TACTICS, Aries, and TransSuite.
Our team will walk your project from analysis through design, construction, and monitoring of traffic signal operations. We always encourage feedback from our clients, consider the needs and concerns of those affected by the project, and objectively evaluate all possible alternatives. This approach enables HLR to provide cost-effective solutions that fit your needs and budget.
