Southeast Corridor

Southeast Corridor

Project: METRO SOLUTIONS – SOUTHEAST CORRIDOR

Client: LAN/METRO

Location: Houston, Texas

The project involves the construction of Guided Rapid Transit (GRT) primarily within existing street rights-of-way. This project would improve mobility, accessibility, and system linkages. The Southeast corridor is approximately 6.8 miles in length, extending from downtown Houston to Palm Center on Griggs and MLK Boulevard through the University of Houston. As a subconsultant to LAN, KIT provided traffic engineering services for Segment 1A, Segment 1B, Segment 1C, Segment 2A, Segment 2B, Segment 3A, Segment 3B, Segment 4A and the storage yard. KIT conducted a field inventory of existing conditions including typical roadway cross-sections, roadway and intersection pavement markings, intersection traffic control, intersection lane use, pedestrian facilities, and unusual roadway features. KIT evaluated existing traffic conditions and developed traffic control plans per the City of Houston/TxDOT design guidelines and in accordance with the procedures described in the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.  KIT coordinated and obtained approvals from the City of Houston, TxDOT, and County Traffic Management and Maintenance Divisions. KIT prepared the specifications, quantity take-off’s, and cost estimates for traffic control plan items. KIT prepared street lighting plans.

Traffic Engineering Study and Level of Service Analysis

Traffic Engineering Study and Level of Service Analysis

Project: Traffic Engineering Study and Level of Service (LOS) Analysis, Memorial Drive Paving Improvements from North Kirkwood to North Eldridge, North Eldridge and Memorial Drive Intersection, and North Eldridge Widening From Memorial Drive to I-10.

Location: Houston, Texas

Client: Civiltech/City of Houston.

Tasks include traffic impact study and a level of service analysis to evaluate the existing and the proposed roadway improvements on North Eldridge at Memorial Drive.  The project study area includes the Energy Corridor requirements and their concerns for the initial proposed improvements.  Tasks also include traffic signal modifications, traffic signal field book preparation, pavement markings, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans, and traffic control plans. KIT performed a traffic engineering study and a level of service analysis for the AM and PM peak hour conditions to evaluate the existing roadway, traffic operations and the impacts of proposed roadway improvements along Memorial Drive between Kirkwood Drive and Eldridge Parkway.
