Client: Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning

LKMA provided transportation planning services for Suffolk County’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted by the County in 2015.  The plan focuses on connecting present and future employment centers, Transit Oriented Developments and Regionally-significant Projects, utilizing all modes of transportation, with an emphasis on mass transit.  LKMA’s recommendations included the prioritization of future improvements in three areas—highways, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Client: Town of Oyster Bay

This project involved the preparation of a detailed traffic study for the extension of both Duffy Avenue and East Barclay Street though the area known as the Hicksville Triangle, situated between NY Routes 106 and 107.  The project included a full array of traffic volume, speed and classification studies, traffic accident analysis, and a major origin-destination study using license plate matching for vehicles traveling through the core improvement area.  Origins of LIRR commuter parkers at the various parking lots and garages adjacent to the Hicksville railroad station were analyzed by checking license plate registrations with the Department of Motor Vehicles.  

Client: Suffolk County DPW

Preparation of a comprehensive Highway Transportation Needs Assessment for over 80 Suffolk County Highways totaling 432 centerline miles of highway.  The study examined existing and future traffic and roadway conditions, compiled traffic, bridge and roadway inventory information, identified highway deficiencies and associated improvements, established service and safety standards and developed a prioritized listing of projects with estimated costs for inclusion in future County Capital Programs.   A computerized format that is readily accessible and understandable by SCDPW staff was used.  It incorporated basic GIS-based elements with the integration of relational databases.  A unique feature of this project involved the use of a “road van” using laser and computer technology to inventory roadway features and non-destructively provide roughness and distress data for pavement evaluation.
