At Wells + Associates, we improve transportation systems with services that range from engineering and planning to the development of improved parking solutions and more transportation options through TDM solutions. Across Colorado, we serve:
- Residential and commercial developers

- Business owners
Our team members are known for their ability to integrate transportation expertise into our clients’ multi-disciplinary teams – helping developments cross the finish line. Our lead Colorado traffic engineer is Brian Horan, a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.
Beyond our home base in Denver County, we perform transportation consulting services in every county, city, and town in Colorado.
Transportation Services in Colorado
Across the state and in each client engagement, our goal is to create multi-modal transportation plans and transportation and parking solutions that result in the most innovative, creative, and useful designs for our clients’ projects.
Traffic Engineering and Transportation Planning
We provide a full range of traffic engineering services to private real estate developers, commercial enterprises, public agencies, and institutions such as universities and schools. For over 25 years, we have successfully completed more than 7,000 traffic engineering and planning projects in 39 states, the District of Columbia, and five foreign countries.
Transportation Demand Management (TDM)
Our TDM team plans, creates, promotes, and evaluates convenient alternatives to driving, to get cars off the road and/or out of your garage, to create work-life balance, and to reduce stress. We do so by changing travel behavior, particularly at peak commute hours. Our TDM project work helps increase density and reduce parking construction costs while fostering transit-oriented development, complete streets, walkable activity centers, livability and sustainability initiatives.
We analyze, design, and modernize parking facilities not simply because they are integral parts of the entire transportation ecosystem, but because they are crucial to creating better office, residential, commercial, educational, and healthcare experiences. Our work ranges from parking systems that are still a concept on paper to facilities that have outlived their usefulness and need modernization.
Traffic-Related Permitting and Entitlement for Property Developers
Project and real estate developers are often required to obtain traffic and transportation-related permits as part of the entitlement process for proposed property development.
Wells + Associates’ Colorado-based traffic engineers and transportation experts work with developers to perform detailed traffic impact analyses and traffic studies to support development projects at the local and county levels. Depending on the needs of the developer and the entitlement process (rezoning, special use, etc.), we prepare a range of transportation reports, such as:
- Traffic Impact Studies/Analysis
- Traffic Letters
- Traffic Conformance Letters
- Transportation Information
- Entrance Permits
