RESPEC’s planning team offers an extensive background in developing active transportation plans that improve the safety and overall experience for bicyclists, pedestrians, and other users of nonmotorized travel. We believe in promoting a community as a destination that values the safety, health, and well-being of visitors and citizens.
We assist our clients in envisioning the possibilities and building an actionable plan to achieve these goals with our unmatched expertise in master planning. RESPEC works as an extension of our client’s team to assess existing corridors and needs, conduct public outreach, forecast expected growth and usage, and identify safety hazards and barriers within the network. By using these data as a foundation, our planners and civil engineers develop recommendations for capital improvement projects that reduce risks and solve transportation gaps while aligning with local, state, and federal codes.
We adapt our suggestions to the client’s specific climate, community, and patrons. Our solutions account for year-round use with an emphasis on easy maintenance. Recognizing typical budget restraints, we develop practical plans that can be implemented in phases based on priority and funding. As a result, our clients can focus on high-impact, low-cost items that will build community support for long-term projects with greater investments.
RESPEC’s solutions skillfully unite best practices with emerging trends to create a customized, multimodal transportation plan for our clients’ community needs. Our designs result in a safer network for pedestrians and cyclists, which is an asset for all communities and regions.
