Traffic Accommodation Strategies / Construction Traffic Management Plans
Traffic safety is essential when work activities involving new developments, utilities and highway constructions or rehabilitation, structure work, and when surveying are performed on or adjacent to roadways, bridge structures or facilities. In any of these cases, a Traffic Accommodation Strategy (TAS) or Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) would be required to safely guide the traveling public and direct traffic through the work zones.
The purpose of a TAS or CTMP is to provide adequate information, traffic control devices, work zone signage and operational procedures to meet minimum road agency standards. A TAS or CTMP is intended for the various parties involved in the work activities so that the accommodation of traffic is handled in a consistent, safe, and effective manner. A TAS or CTMP is essential to ensure that all parties involved in constructions have a clear understanding of how traffic needs to be accommodated during the construction and through the construction zones.
LSL Engineering Consultants Inc. has the expertise in designing TAS or CTMP for development or highway construction projects. Our team is capable of developing effective TAS or CTMP plans utilizing various traffic control devices for construction activities on both urban and rural highway, as well as preparing design drawings detailing temporary signage and site specific traffic control measures for non-typical work zones. Our team's existing and past project experiences include designing TAS and or CTMP plans for development construction projects in British Columbia's Lower Mainland, and for highway construction related projects under the jurisdictions of Alberta Transportation, The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) and California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) respectively.
