Gibson Transportation Consulting prepared the traffic impact analysis, including analysis of 108 study intersections and numerous Caltrans facilities, for inclusion in the Draft Environmental Impact Report.

UNION STATION

Gibson Transportation Consulting served as a member of a study team to develop an expansion plan for Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. As the hub of the rail system in Los Angeles, Union Station is nearing its capacity to serve additional passengers. Rail service in Southern California continues to grow and Union Station must change to accommodate that growth. New service and additional tracks to/from the facility require new bridges over the US 101 freeway to the south and upgraded bridges to the north. The interior of the facility also has to be extensively remodeled to increase its ability to handle more passengers. Gibson Transportation Consulting studied construction impacts as part of the environmental impact report process.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA)

We conducted a full parking inventory and occupancy study of the main campus to document the supply and to measure the parking usage pattern throughout the day. We also observed Pepperdine’s graduation ceremonies, where campus traffic and parking capacities are stretched to the limits, and made immediate action, short-range, and long-range recommendations for handling the crowds. Shuttle bus routes, guide signs, pedestrian improvements, and traffic control strategies were all implemented to ease the flow of traffic and enhance the visitor experience. Gibson Transportation Consulting also conducted traffic and parking studies for a new satellite campus in Calabasas.
