AEA reviewed site plans, a traffic study and a parking study, focusing on sight distance, site access/circulation, traffic count data, trip generation, traffic assignment, intersection capacity, queuing estimates, and parking lot occupancy data in preparing a review letter report for a retail expansion on behalf of Middle Township, Cape May County. Sworn testimony was provided explaining our findings.
For private developers, AEA reviewed traffic count data, compared trip generation for the proposed and other compatible uses, levels of service, and proposed roadway improvements to provide sworn testimony before Galloway Township Planning Board in Atlantic County. The project was approved.
Our lead traffic engineer has prepared over 100 traffic and parking studies, and has been recognized as an expert in the area of traffic engineering and parking before more than 40 municipal boards. For the public sector, he represented the Washington Township (Gloucester County, NJ) Planning Board as the appointed traffic engineer for eight of ten years from 2001 to 2010, and has recently presented traffic operations under detoured conditions to local officials on behalf of NJDOT.
For the private sector, he has presented testimony assisting various land development projects such as residential, office, banks, pharmacies, fast food restaurants, places of worship, gas station / convenience stores, mixed use retail and office, hotels, universities, and hospitals, discussing intersection or roadway improvements required to mitigate site traffic. In 1998, he successfully argued that drive through lanes at pharmacies would not experience the same queuing as drive through lanes at banks or fast food restaurants for one of the first pharmacies in the region with a drive through lane.
