Traffic Impact Analysis Indicates Planned Roadways Will Accommodate Expansion Plans
In December 2001, Anne Arundel Medical Center, located in the Anne Arundel Health System’s Medical Park, greatly expanded with the opening of a new 277,000 S.F., six story Acute Care Pavilion in Annapolis, Maryland.
Wells + Associates’ traffic engineering team was retained by the Center to conduct a traffic impact analysis for the expansion of the campus, as well as the relocation of the existing Anne Arundel General Hospital to the new campus.
W+A’s analysis considered the impact of the campus expansion, the relocation of the existing hospital from the historic district of Annapolis, and the impact of the Medical Parkway extension. The results indicated that the expansion plans for the Anne Arundel Medical Center campus would be more than adequately served by the existing and planned roadway network.
In addition, we provided analysis of the internal site circulation and made recommendations for modification to the site access, garage circulation, and traffic control improvements, including traffic signal installation. W+A prepared all signing, pavement marking, and signal plans.
