The project team also included Bohannan Huston Inc, Terracon, Cobb Findley, and Marron & Associates. In addition to managing the project, Lee Engineering was responsible for leading the public involvement process. LEE also conducted all traffic engineering analyses which includes but is not limited to the following: LOS/capacity analysis, queue storage assessment, access management analysis, comprehensive safety analysis, a recommended corridor signal timing plan, signal warrant analysis, and ITS assessments. Additionally, LEE was responsible for recommending and analyzing several proposed design alternatives. LEE will be the primary author of the Traffic Operations and Safety Report as well as the final Phase 1A Report.
