Transforming Project Delivery with 3D Technology

To meet the traffic, multimodal and safety needs of modern communities, American roadways are changing, and the technology used to plan, design and construct it is changing too. 3D design and delivery, in particular, are transforming the way we visualize projects and move through the design and construction phases.

Our staff is committed to using industry technology in order to provide proper support to every client. Using Bentley Open Roads and Autodesk Civil 3D, we eliminate the need for 2D cut sheets, streamline the review process and save time by working in an environment built for discipline-specific reviews.

Meeting the Unique Needs of Your Community

Using industry-leading technology and equipment, our experts are able to recommend optimal solutions. For the Jane Addams Tollway in Illinois this resulted in a Smart Corridor plan, consisting of 18 miles of Active Traffic Management (ATM) and lane control signs/DMS for every lane, a first-of-its-kind solution when at the time of its design.

By providing preliminary engineering studies, environmental studies, final design and construction consultation, Benesch was able to transform SR 322 in Pennsylvania. The final design alternative included the introduction of two additional lanes south of the existing roadway, the utilization of a grassed median to control access to the corridor, and left turn lanes and adaptive traffic signal systems to increase the capacity of existing intersections.
