The impact of land development and transportation
changes on traffic and environmental conditions is increasingly important to
society at large. LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. has the experience,
knowledge, and computer programs needed to assess development impacts and to
identify appropriate mitigation measures and access plans.
Traffic Impact Studies
As concerns over traffic have increased, the
evaluation of traffic impacts has become increasingly complex. LSC has
extensive experience in all aspects of traffic impact assessment, including
a wide range of analysis techniques ranging from simple trip generation
through 3-D micro-simulation to the profession's state of the art in
transportation modeling. Our experience for all types of residential,
commercial, institutional, and recreational projects in an extensive
diversity of study settings provides us with a knowledge base that can be
effectively applied to new projects.
Transportation impact analyses conducted as part of
Environmental Impact Studies (EIS's) and Environmental Impact Reports (EIR's)
require a specialized knowledge of the requirements of the National
Environ-mental Policy Act or state environmental laws. Building upon our
extensive experience in environmental documents, LSC has a strong
understanding of EIS/EIR issues, such as definition of standards of
significance, identification of significant impacts, and development of
appropriate mitigation measures. We can also assist in the scoping, public
input, and response to comments phases of environmental documents.
