raSmith’s staff of traffic engineering consultants analyze and design transportation solutions to ensure safe and efficient operations for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Our staff includes certified roundabout designers and one of just a few access management experts in the state of Wisconsin. Headquartered in Brookfield, the team works with a wide range of clients including the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), local government, land developers, and development professionals nationwide. Regardless of the specific traffic issue, uncovering the root of the problem focuses efforts on creating a solution, not just a deliverable. Developing the ideal solution may involve other disciplines that bring insight and expertise. Associated disciplines within raSmith range from land survey and structural engineering to transportation design.
