Corridor Planning

KAI is made up of individuals who work tirelessly and passionately on crafting transportation solutions that support community building. As the spines that connect and unite communities, corridors present the best opportunity for incorporating land use planning and decision-making to arrive at community-supportive transportation solutions. KAI understands that thoughtful corridor planning has the potential to holistically address transportation challenges as well as catalyze economic development. We have conducted hundreds of corridor and subarea studies throughout the country in rural, urbanizing, and urban areas on collector, arterial, highway, and freeway corridors. These studies have identified strategies that include transportation-specific solutions (i.e. roadway redesign, sidewalk additions, or transit service changes); traffic operational changes and improvements (i.e. signal changes); access management; community branding and marketing (i.e. wayfinding); area-wide network changes (i.e. new street, trail or sidewalk connections); and land use development and policy recommendations (i.e. development pattern, site design, and lot layout). Key to the success of these projects is our ability to:

  • Apply the right technical analysis at the right time and the right level of detail
  • Convey technical information in objective and compelling ways for the public and elected officials
  • Develop and apply evaluation methods that directly measure desired outcomes
  • Build corridor-wide consensus through the decision-making process that leads to partnerships
