MTJ Design/Peer Review Approach
MTJ’s design/peer review process considers the entire context of the roadway as it relates to a roundabout/intersection design. This holistic design/review approach allows for optimizing for safety and operations for all modes while minimizing impacts and costs.
MTJ’s experience in transportation planning, traffic analysis and design allows for the development of appropriate designs that balance the inherent competing variables to meet project objectives with acceptable costs and impacts.
The MTJ approach utilizes the operational characteristics of roundabouts to maximize business access/circulation and other related corridor cross-section benefits, to include bicycle and pedestrian circulation and safety, which are applied specifically to the context of each project. Each roundabout is specifically designed to address the traffic flows, site constraints, context, and project objectives of the particular intersection or corridor.
MTJ’s comprehensive design/peer review approach identifies opportunities for design improvements to increase driver comprehension and optimize safety and operations. MTJ’s review process and subsequent recommendations are anchored in state-of-art roundabout design principles in concert with traffic planning and roadway engineering criteria.
