Skyway Downtown Safety Project
Paradise, CA (2013 - 2014)
Traffic Works was selected to be the prime consultant to assist the town of Paradise in designing and implementing a variety of safety improvements. The project entailed a road diet on Skyway through downtown Paradise, California. Traffic Works collected data and documented existing conditions, forecasted future traffic volumes through the corridor, and modeled various traffic diversion scenarios using Synchro micro-simulation software. Based on the results of the micro-simulation model, Traffic Works developed mitigation techniques to maintain acceptable traffic operations while implementing the road diet. Traffic Works developed the final design traffic signal PS&E package and supported the Town with public outreach and overall project peer review.
