Our Approach to Design
RK Engineering Group, Inc. (RK) provides traffic engineering design services that include traffic signal plans, signing and striping plans, and worksite traffic control plans. RK’s Team utilizes their civil engineering experience in the design of construction plans working closely with public agency and highway engineers to provide a comprehensive design. RK provides the technical experience in each design plan as well as provides specification documentation and cost estimates with each project.
RK coordinates with a number of different agencies and work with a variety of different projects from new installations to traffic signal modifications to existing infrastructure. Recent traffic signal design projects have included video detection, fiber optic and wireless signal interconnect, emergency vehicle preemption and a variety of traffic signal controllers and cabinets. With a versatile staff involved in traffic engineering, RK is able to provide detailed analysis in each design. RK visits every job site to determine the existing conditions evaluating roadway geometrics, possible utility conflicts, sight distance issues, signing and striping improvements creating an all-inclusive project.
Our team of Traffic Engineering staff specializes in the development and implementation of transportation projects in urban and rural areas. We work with state agencies, local governments, private companies, and non-profit organizations to provide technical expertise on all aspects of roadway and traffic signal design.
