Network connectivity is one of the most critical components of transportation vitality and economic success for any community. Like your own internal circulation system, transportation networks require components that encourage mobility (veins) and components that support access (capillaries).

As with any natural system, redundancy is crucial. The more ways one has to connect, the more resiliant the system will be. However, attempting to stretch existing facilities to serve functions that do not match its context is one of the primary causes of driver discomfort, hazard and economic decline.

Over time and with land use change, roadways will begin to function differently and design changes then become appropriate. However it is important to allow land use changes to drive transportation improvements rather than to allow transportation facility changes to displace productive land uses.

We can identify where those changes are likely to occur so that the transitions can be made at an appropriate time. We also identify locations where new connections can support the mobility goals of the community without endangering the critical natural or social resources within the community. We can also help communities plan for the additional resiliancy of multiple mode choice options.
