SRF provides a wide range of transportation system management services:
Traffic Incident Management
When an interstate or freeway experiences an incident causing a roadway segment to temporarily close, it can impact traffic not only on that particular segment but the roadway system of the surrounding area. It is important to have a plan in place to identify critical notifications and actions that provide direction and enable traffic to continue moving that can prevent secondary crashes.
At SRF, we offer traffic incident management support services, such as establishing alternate route guides, and coordinate these efforts with public safety agencies affected by the occurrence of a traffic incident. We provide specific technical design and safety services, but also are familiar with the larger policy implications needed to be consistent on a statewide basis when determining alternate routes.
Growing traffic volumes and limited financial resources have created a need for alternative strategies to address congestion in most large metropolitan areas. SRF has been a leader in analyzing, designing, and implementing pricing technologies as well as assisting agencies in extensive public outreach programs. Our work has included project management, planning and design activities, operations, maintenance and enforcement, construction management and system operations analysis. SRF has been integrally involved in the implementation of HOT and HOV lanes.
The Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Management Process encourages fine-tuning metropolitan freeway and expressway systems to minimize congestion and maximize safety, while considering the fundamental design of the roadway corridor. SRF is a leader in helping state, MPO, county, and city jurisdictions work to develop implementable processes, strategies, and projects that effectively mitigate safety and congestion issues. Our flexible congestion management process offers state and local transportation agencies a cost-effective way to maximize urban mobility by minimizing travel delay and improving safety on high-volume roadways.
