Transportation infrastructure is an integral part of daily life. Our roadways, sidewalks, and bicycle paths take us where we need to go: to work and home, to visit family and friends, to see and connect with the world around us. Well-designed transportation infrastructure and thoughtful traffic engineering make people’s lives better.

Connecting communities with thoughtful infrastructure

Nitsch works collaboratively with our clients to provide safe and efficient travel space for traditional motor vehicles, public transportation, bicycles, and pedestrians. We prioritize designing complete streets projects that improve safety, manage capacity, reduce congestion, protect or restore the environment, and – most importantly – meet the unique needs of the community. Nitsch specializes in integrating green infrastructure techniques into roadways, resulting in projects that positively impact the environment while also improving a roadway’s appearance and the experience of all roadway users.

We have comprehensive experience in the design of roadways and bicycle paths for cities and towns, state agencies such as the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), and private entities that design and construct roadways in cooperation with municipalities.
