Transportation is vital to the economy and our daily lives.
Roadways and bridges, passenger and freight rail, ferry, and transit projects face an array of overlapping and competing jurisdictional regulations, environmental concerns, stakeholder interests, and limited financial resources.
Transportation projects engage a wide number of regulatory agencies and stakeholders, including tribes, environmental advocacy groups, and the general public. We are adept at coordinating with these groups with an efficient approach to environmental products and processes.
Our clients include city and county departments of public works and transportation, regional transportation authorities and transit agencies, state departments of transportation, federal transportation administrations, and other agencies engaged in facilitating the movement of people and goods. We efficiently navigate the unique regulations and funding requirements facing transportation projects including Sections 4(f) and 6(f), MAP-21, and the environmental and planning regulations of the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, and the Federal Railroad Administration.
The Burke-Gilman Trail (BGT) is one of the most heavily used pedestrian and bicycling paths in Seattle, serving as a major transportation corridor for commuter and recreational bicyclists. Noted as a top priority project in the City’s Bicycle Master Plan, the completion of the BGT network will improve Seattle’s health and quality of life by providing safe bicycle and pedestrian travel routes for residents of all ages.
