The Woodstock City Council has approved hiring a consultant, Arcadis U.S. Inc., to conduct a $53,266 traffic engineering study for the downtown area.
In a letter proposing the firm’s services, Project Manager Matt McDow said Arcadis would collect field data on existing conditions including morning and evening peak-hour operation for up to 20 intersections; and use state, regional and local data to predict future traffic under a no-build scenario.
The consultant would test future scenarios with possible improvements, such as turn lanes, conversions of streets from one-way to two-way, and traffic signal changes, the letter says. Arcadis would work with the city to develop a final traffic model reflecting improvements and produce a report summarizing its methodology and results.
