Retail Deveopment

Town of Erwin, Steuben County, New York

The firm was responsible for the traffic and transportation issues related to a multi-use site, situated on a 32 acre parcel. The mixed retail use totals 345,000 S.F. and consists of a 155,000 S.F. free-standing discount super-store (Wal-Mart), a 160,000 S.F. home improvement store, a 25,000 S.F. office supply store, and a 5,000 S.F. restaurant. SRF was responsible for preparing a Site Impact Traffic Evaluation that addressed the anticipated traffic impacts at four isolated intersections, as well as ramp surface terminals in the immediate vicinity of the project. Two addenda were produced to deal with unique features of the local network, and addressed specific issues related to queuing, merging, and weaving. The final document included an implementation plan designed to provide corridor wide mitigation, and user benefits equal to the projected economic impact. SRF & Associates was also responsible for an isolated traffic signal design at the main access point to the site, modifications to an adjacent traffic signal, and interconnection and progression of the signals using time base coordination.
