Community Technical Assistance

This program provides municipal officials in the SRPEDD region data-driven, technical recommendations regarding local transportation concerns.

SRPEDD's Transportation Planning Department provides assistance for a wide variety of transportation issues.

Designed to provide technical assistance as needed and requested by SRPEDD member communities, the community technical assistance program addresses local transportation issues that do not need a comprehensive planning study, but may include:

  • Traffic Counts
  • Traffic Calming
  • Signal Warrants
  • Speed Studies
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian Access
  • Access Management

These projects are typically completed using existing or minimal data collection and through a Technical Memorandum to the community, which provides an overview of an issue and recommends short-term/low-cost solutions. Requests for Community Technical Assistance can be submitted through the online application form.

Generally Community Technical Assistance is provided to the town under SRPEDD's transportation operating budget at no cost to the municipality. If additional services are needed such as a police detail, the cost for the service would be the responsibility of the municipality.

In 2018 SRPEDD completed a Road Safety Analysis per the request of the town at this intersection. As part of the process the daily traffic patterns, historical crash data, and existing road conditions were analyzed. After a detailed analysis was conducted, this audit suggested the intersection should be changed to a Multi-Way Stop in order to improve transportation safety in the community.

Carver Potential Trip Generation Impact from Spring Street Development

In 2013 SRPEDD's Comprehensive Planning Staff proposed potential commercial development in Carver on Spring Street south of U.S. Route 44. The Transportation Planning Staff conducted an analysis to estimate how this development would affect trips on Spring Street. This study determined the entrance should be placed 700 feet south of the Route 44 interchange.
