Our Local Contributions

Multimodal Planning

Downtown Dallas 360 – Recommended urban mobility principles; a street typology; and signature corridor design concepts to enhance streetscapes and mobility in Downtown Dallas. Conducted a small area validation of the NCTCOG travel demand model to reflect conditions in Downtown, using origin-destination big data to make significant adjustments to model trip lengths and travel patterns within, to, and from Downtown.

Transit Planning

Lubbock Citibus – We are providing our expertise to Lubbock Citibus to define new locations, space requirements, preliminary costs, funding strategies, and route implications for a new maintenance/administration facility, a new downtown transit plaza, and mobility hubs.

Transportation Master Plan

Hensley Field Master Plan – Providing transportation planning and engineering related to the Hensley Field Reuse and Redevelopment Master Plan; primary responsibility is preparation of the Multimodal Transportation Plan.  Additional details: https://www.hensleyfield.com/

Transportation Forecasting

I-345 Feasibility Study – Conducting a study of replacement of an elevated freeway structure on the east side of Downtown and separating Downtown from Deep Elum. Replacement options included an at-grade boulevard, elevated freeway or below ground freeway.  Utilized big data to understand travel patterns of trips occurring on I-345.

Transportation Safety

El Paso Vision Zero – Fehr & Peers is leading the systemic pedestrian safety analysis and supporting all other tasks in preparation of El Paso’s first Vision Zero Plan. Fehr & Peers conducted the data discovery and data collection, performed crash data analysis and developed the High-Injury Network (HIN) and are currently preparing collision profiles with crash reduction costs, prioritizing locations for attention, and preparing a predictive pedestrian safety model that will help identify high risk locations based on crash history, land use and roadway characteristics. Fehr & Peers also prepared the web-based Vision Zero Data Dashboard on the Esri Enterprise GIS Platform.

Transportation Safety

Denton Vision Zero – Fehr & Peers acted as part of a team developing a Vision Zero assessment for the City of Denton.  The strategy was based on an assessment and benchmarking effort that the team provided, based on the 10 core elements of Vision Zero (developed by the Vision Zero Network).  Fehr & Peers documented this work in the form of web content that is prominently featured on the City’s webpage.
