TTG Partnered with SDVOSB Firms Gryphon Environmental and Scout Environmental
BALTIMORE, MD — The Traffic Group, Inc. (TTG) – one of the nation’s leading SDVOSB traffic engineering and transportation planning firms – has completed the traffic engineering component of a project with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for its Environmental Assessment Reports and reporting to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as part of its requirements for the Seismic Program.
TTG’s SDVOSB partners Gryphon Environmental and Scout Environment handled all other aspects of the project requirements. The projects are located at Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in American Lake, Washington; White City, Oregon; Palo Alto, California; Reno, Nevada; and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Specifically, as part of the NEPA component and requirement, The Traffic Group undertook traffic impact analyses and parking baseline studies, establishing the baseline traffic information for the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMCs).
The Traffic Group also evaluated the potential traffic impacts associated with any proposed expansion and related increased traffic volumes, including identifying Level of Service (LOS) impacts and coordinating with state and local transportation agencies regarding study findings and potential mitigation options, if required.
