BFJ has extensive experience and capabilities in the fields of transportation planning and traffic circulation. We perform traffic circulation and impact studies, infrastructure capacity and performance analyses, safety studies, traffic calming studies, parking programs, transit studies, and multi-modal transportation plans, including micro-mobility strategies. Our transportation planners work closely with our land use planners, environmental experts, and economists to provide our clients with integrated transportation solutions.

Traffic Circulaion and Impact Studies
Finding safe and sustainable solutions to complex traffic circulation problems has been a major goal for BFJ’s transportation planners. The firm has extensive experience in traffic impact analyses and developing realistic traffic mitigation measures for many types of developments including mixed-use projects. These studies have been undertaken in a wide range of environments from small villages to dense urban areas and covered all modes of transportation.

Campus Transportation Plans
BFJ has developed a widely recognized expertise in transportation planning for campus environments, including Ivy League universities, state universities, community colleges, and corporate campuses. These studies cover traffic circulation recommendations, parking management programs, transit shuttle services, Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies, and metrics to measure the impacts of changes.

Complete Streets, Road Diets, and Traffic Calming
BFJ understands that streets should be designed to be comfortable, and safe for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and people with disabilities, as well as motorists. Our approach to creating more friendly streets is context-specific and may include a variety of design interventions to improve safety, while maintaining efficient vehicular movement.

Roundabout Planning and Design
These new circular intersections are a very effective and sustainable traffic control and traffic calming tool. BFJ began advocating for modern roundabouts in the late 1990s, when most traffic engineers saw these circular intersections as problematic. In 1998, the firm wrote the first national publication on modern roundabouts for the Transportation Research Board, National Research Council. Modern roundabouts have been successful in reducing injury crashes at intersections by more than 70 percent and practically eliminating fatalities. BFJ has undertaken numerous roundabout feasibility and performance studies throughout North America, Latin America, and Europe.
