34321240344427projecttribalI-84.jpgWHPacific has completed more than 200 Transportation Planning Studies on Indian Reservations throughout the United States. These 20-year plans consist of identifying and evaluating present and future transportation needs in relation to the Tribe’s social, economic and development goals, including extensive inventories of the transportation network, documentation of traffic safety problems and identification of betterment projects that address tribal land use and economic objectives. Preliminary cost estimates are prepared for each improvement project, and projects are ranked for implementation according to their relative need.  Transportation Planning Reports include: mechanical/manual traffic counts, turn-movement counts, land use inventories, reservation data and accident location data.  The Indian Community is extensively involved in every phase of the study process including acting as field guides and being trained as traffic count technicians. A few of recent projects include:
