Detailed Design

Detailed DesignCastleglenn’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.

Transit Systems

Transit SystemsFrequent 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

Greenhouse Gas EmissionsGreenhouse 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.

Cycling and Multi-Use Paths

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.

Traffic Forecasting, Modeling & Simulation

This includes: data collection (traffic volumes, population, employment, trip rates, travel costs, etc.) and the development of traffic demand models depicting existing and forecast traffic conditions. Animations and simulations are used to depict future traffic operational conditions.

Traffic ForecastingSpecifically for quarries, heavy vehicle forecasting and generation is highly dependent upon the production rate of quarries. Castleglenn’s forecasting involve: data collection and the development of traffic demand models for existing and future quarry operations.

Peer Review

shutterstock_164234267Castleglenn has been called upon on numerous occasions to provide a critical review of work that had been previously undertaken by other firms. Whether in the form of documents or studies provided by other firms, the conclusions reached are critically analyzed using comprehensive evaluation criteria and methods addressing issues such as safety, maintenance of professional design standards, performance criteria and objective satisfaction to assure credibility and soundness in professional works.
