Castleglenn’s roadway designs include grading, horizontal and vertical curve geometry, cross-section and pavement structure, storm water management, intersections, signing and striping elements.
Specifically for institutions and quarries (or other developments that need to accommodate emergency and/or heavy vehicles), Castleglenn focuses on its designs for emergency and/or heavy vehicles: grading, adequate horizontal and vertical curves to accommodate vehicle turning movements, cross-sections and pavement structures able to sustain heavy loads, intersections, roadway restrictions (if applicable), heavy vehicle routes, ramps and signing. The design features would allow for optimal operational practice and vehicle safety.
Frequent and efficient transit systems help reduce traffic congestion on local roadways and provide an alternative mode of transportation for commuters. Transit system planning includes forecast ridership, determining infrastructure requirements and evaluation of existing facilities.
Castleglenn evaluates transit use as a part of each of its Transportation Impact Assessments to ensure this mode of travel is accounted for.
Greenhouse gas emission modeling can be analyzed based upon traffic volumes, heavy vehicle volumes and traffic operations. Castleglenn evaluates quantities of fuel consumption, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds and can compare these emissions for various transportation network options.
An Environmental Overview is an assessment tool that provides basic information on existing environmental conditions and an assessment of how the environment might be altered as a result of proposed infrastructure.
Castleglenn evaluates numerous environmental factors as part of each of its Functional Planning Studies, including impacts to: wildlife, fisheries, vegetation, landforms, groundwater and wetlands.
Safe and convenient cycling facilities are an important part of a thriving transportation network. They provide a sustainable opportunity for leisurely or commuting cycling and promote a healthy lifestyle. Transportation studies include recreational and commuter pathway planning to provide convenient access for cyclists, runners, pedestrians and wheelchairs. Cycling and multi-use facility planning and design includes on-street and off-street facilities.
Transportation research addresses variables that include: population, land use, economic activity, transportation facilities and services, travel patterns and volumes, laws and ordinances, regional financial resources, community values and expectations. Castleglenn prides itself on undertaking comprehensive transportation research and providing its clients with concise information and recommendations.
Castleglenn uses profile modeling to determine the ultimate requirements necessary to meet parking and traffic demand. Site generated traffic as well as transit, pedestrian and cycling provisions are accommodated within our designs.
Identifying critical issues with emergency and heavy vehicle turning movements, parking, delivery areas and pedestrian walkways or crossing concerns.
These assessments are done to determine the level of sustainable development that can be accommodated in a particular area, the most appropriate long-term use of the land and determining a planning and development strategy.
Strategies for TCPs involve directing vehicular and pedestrian traffic around a construction zone, accident or other road disruption to ensure the safety of emergency response teams, construction workers and the general public.
