TRAFFIC & TRANSPORTATION

Ackerman-Estvold's Traffic and Transportation Engineers aim to design and construct facilities that ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.

Transportation Engineering includes the design and construction of all transportation corridors, including roads and rail lines. Services in this discipline include traffic studies, project concept reporting, corridor sizing and configuration, recommend materials and thickness of paving, and environmental assessments and evaluations.

The Traffic Engineering aspect refers to all the amenities that drivers see and use to guide them through the corridors. Services include traffic operations study, parking needs analysis, parking design, geometrics of roadway which includes determining lane widths, assignments, and specific lane needs, signals, signage, pavement markings, and lighting.

MUNICIPAL

Many small communities and political subdivisions cannot justify the services of a full-time engineer as a part of their personnel. These communities have turned to Ackerman-Estvold to serve as their trusted consultant and advisor. Assisting in a wide range of projects from land planning to stormwater management, and from ordinance writing to creating construction documents for public improvements, Ackerman-Estvold provides communities with the backing of the entire organization, not just that of a single engineer. With aging infrastructure and expanding development, communities need services like ours now more than ever to ensure sustainable and responsible improvements are made and that they are in the best interest of the community and their residents. Our priority is to serve as an advocate for our cities helping foster growth and viable improvements in a manner that serves the greater good. 

In addition to our primary role as Civil Engineers and Architects, we can also assist communities and political subdivisions in a variety of other areas including communications, graphic design, and financial planning.

CONSTRUCTION

CIVIL ENGINEERING

Equally as important as the design of a project is the correct implementation of that design. Regardless of whether your project was designed by Ackerman-Estvold engineers or not, duties are only partially complete when the plans and specifications are done.

We have a highly trained team of construction engineers and engineering technicians available to perform any task associated with your construction project. Depending on your project needs, we can provide regular site visits by an engineer or station personnel on-site full-time to observe and document the services provided by the construction contractor. Ackerman-Estvold's construction engineers are experienced, knowledgeable, and well-educated on regulations and will ensure that the needs of your construction project are met with the utmost quality. Through our comprehensive construction management procedures, we can assure you that your project is constructed on time, within budget, and with superior quality.
