Transportation is an important, but widely debated topic in many communities. How do you provide accessible services, while also not crowding roadways with construction and spending an excessive amount of city funding? It’s all about striking a balance.
First and foremost, transportation needs are underfunded across the board, which creates its own set of problems. Citizens are faced with less-than-perfect roads, but also don’t want to deal with the hassle that comes with construction—much less the addition to their taxes. But, the growing need for city transportation services is hard to ignore.
At V&K, we understand this conundrum. More often than not federal and state dollars are going toward regional projects, and you want to address local road projects. So, it comes down to the right kind of project for your community. Our engineers are experienced in triaging your city’s needs, identifying projects that will garner support from the community without shutting down traffic or overloading the budget. Along with city staff, we’ll look to the future to target areas of greatest need and highlight areas of greatest opportunity.
