Leader in Transportation Planning
Iteris’ transportation planners support our clients with consulting services to meet their unique multimodal transportation needs. Our primary service areas include travel demand forecasting, traffic microsimulation and traffic engineering, project impact assessment, and corridor and area-wide systems assessments.
We have successfully completed hundreds of projects and studies for a wide variety of local and regional public agencies, and private clients.
Traffic Circulation & Safety Study – Santa Ynez Valley, CA
The purpose of this study was to comprehensively assess and identify circulation and safety improvements for the multimodal transportation needs of the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County, California.
The existing highway network was stressed, serving growing numbers of local trips, tourism, regional trips and commuters. Iteris prepared a quantitative assessment of travel conditions and the potential value of various improvement scenarios.
After collecting and analyzing extensive traffic data in a microsimulation network, Iteris made short and long-term improvement recommendations to accommodate increasing demand, improve safety, increase connectivity and prioritize improvements to the highway network.
Last-Mile Freight Delivery Study – Los Angeles, CA
Iteris examined urban delivery operations in the City of Los Angeles – specifically identifying current conditions as experienced by both last-mile delivery providers and shipment receivers to understand the larger community impacts.
The study assessed the use of curb areas for deliveries and the magnitude of other curb uses competing for limited curb. It involved stakeholder and analytical findings and recommendations for blocks in case study areas, pilot project concepts, policy considerations and a Toolbox of Strategies for cities to utilize when faced with their own unique delivery challenges.
U.S. Route 101 Multi-Modal Corridor Study – Ventura, CA
U.S. Route 101 is the “Main Street” of Ventura County, providing inter-city connectivity among the major cities of the County, as well as regional trips to Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties, and beyond. The corridor is used by inter-city transit lines and freight carriers, many of which are associated with the local agriculture industry, as well as international shipping.
The Communities Connected Plan aims to reduce congestion by providing more choices for residents, commuters and visitors to the area, while preserving the character of the local community and creating opportunities for neighborhood enhancement projects. The Iteris-developed Ventura County Travel Model was used to evaluate the effectiveness of various modes of transportation improvement alternatives.
The land use and socioeconomic-based model also enabled the project team to establish relationships between land use and mobility along the corridor, and its powerful post-processor modules produce outputs to evaluate vehicle miles of travel (VMT) and other KPIs related to multimodal improvement alternatives.
