Transportation Engineering

TERRA has experience with transportation engineering projects of all sizes, ranging from small local projects to larger projects of regional importance. Highlights include work for federal, state, county and local governments in both rural and complex urban environments. Our experienced staff has completed a variety of transportation projects, including:

  • Traffic data collection and traffic studies

  • Roadway planning and design

  • Bridge design and pavement design

  • Feasibility studies

  • Roadway drainage

  • Urban and rural interstate/freeway design

  • Simple and complex interchange planning and design

  • Roadside safety and barrier warrant analysis

  • Preparation of grant applications

  • Construction staging and traffic maintenance planning

  • Cost estimates and value engineering

Attention to cost, historical significance, citizen input and aesthetics have been important factors in reducing environmental objections and obtaining public acceptance and approval. TERRA uses the nationally recognized Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) process that also is used by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).
