About Us

Wells + Associates empowers people by improving access and mobility. We keep people moving and improve networks with sustainable Traffic Engineering and Transportation Planning, and leading-edge Transportation Demand Management (TDM) solutions.


For 25 years, our professionals have created and implemented sustainable, cost-effective transportation solutions for commercial, residential, governmental, and institutional developments across the United States. Based in the Washington, DC area, we assist developers, businesses, and property owners in securing entitlements, gaining regulatory and community approvals, and designing and implementing multimodal transportation plans to create better, more forward-thinking places and networks.

Developers want profitable investments, commuters demand improved transportation, and property managers need to optimize their operations. We provide the solutions.


Designing Effective Transportation Networks to Facilitate Mobility and Maximize Investments

From traffic impact studies to site assessments, from transit-oriented developments to mixed-use planning, our traffic engineers and transportation planners devise creative transportation solutions to add value to our clients’ projects. Learn more on our Transportation Engineering and Planning page.


Creating and Implementing Better Transportation Options

Commuters, property managers, residents, and developers increasingly see the need for transportation solutions that go beyond the single occupancy vehicle of the 20th century. Our TDM team not only creates plans for sustainable transportation options, but specializes in implementing these as well.


Over the last twenty-five years, we have become trusted transportation consultants on over 7,000 projects in nearly 40 states, with our traffic engineering and transportation planning roots in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC. When you team with W+A, you will discover what many public and private organizations across the country and around the world already know: Our team members are among the most accomplished, most creative implementers in the industry.

Robert Jenkins

The Howard Hughes Corporation has had a long-standing relationship with Wells + Associates.  They are our go to firm for transportation planning, engineering, and design. W+A was instrumental in providing traffic engineering and transportation planning leading to the rezoning of Columbia Town Center. They continue to provide the traffic and transportation planning efforts as development in Columbia progresses. They are smart, professional, and have been an integral part of helping Howard Hughes implement and achieve our vision.  I have personally worked with Wells + Associates for over 25 years, and I highly recommend them to anyone that needs to solve complex transportation issues through an innovative approach.
