Project Experience

Being involved with transportation planners in a statewide forum and working with diverse communities throughout California, we provide our clients with an educated perspective on the job at hand. The following projects are representative of the comprehensive portfolio Green DOT has developed.

Glenn County Regional Transportation Plan

A Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-range (20 year) planning document used to identify transportation infrastructure and program projects for a designated region. The last RTP for the region was developed in 2009/10 and regions are required to update their plans every 5 years to be eligible for certain funding resources. The planning process is more than merely listing highway and transit capital investments; it requires developing strategies for operating, managing, maintaining, and financing the area’s transportation system in such a way as to advance the area’s long term goals. The 2015 RTP development process explored ways to improve multi-modal opportunities for regional and inter-regional travel and maintain a strong commitment to traditional highway improvement projects. We completed an extensive community outreach plan for the RTP update and engaged stakeholders through Spring 2015. Green DOT Transportation Solutions is the primary consultant preparing the 2015 Glenn County RTP, which is currently in the Final Draft.

Alpine County Wayfinding Plan

Wayfinding is a unique communication tool that spatially guides people to a destination. Small in population and just-right in size, Alpine County is brimming with prime Sierra Nevada recreation opportunities and attracts thousands of visitors to it’s quaint, mountain communities. Green DOT developed a comprehensive wayfinding plan to geographically orient and notify residents and visitors of destinations. The project process included a design component, existing conditions analysis, location analysis, stakeholder involvement, and culminating design guideline and recommendations. The final report is organized with four main wayfinding categories:

  • Highway Guide Signs
  • Natural Features, Portals and Places
  • Visitor Kiosk System
  • Trailhead Information Stations

 Intelligent Transportation Program Development

In an effort to improve efficiency and eliminate duplication and errors, Green DOT Transportation Solutions in cooperation with SiteHatchery developed a web-based Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the Calaveras Council of Governments. The previous CIP system used by CCOG, City of Angels, and Calaveras County was built in an Excel platform that had many challenges associated with static and linked databases. Our project team used PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX, and Google Maps API to develop a user friendly web-based management system for the CIP. The system is designed with multiple user access and helps manage projects by fund type. With multi-layered user access levels, the local and regional agencies are able to provide public access to specific project information to promote their transparent programming process. The web-based system virtually eliminates duplication errors and ensures management accountability. The spatial mapping component is especially helpful for project managers and the public when querying projects. Additional functionality includes project scheduling, programming, form submittals, timely use of funds alerts, and invoice management. The programming language will accommodate future additional modules to help agencies manage projects and funds more effectively.

Amador County Program Management and Project Delivery

The Amador County Transportation Commission contracted Green DOT Transportation Solutions to provide on-call support and programming services, assistance towards development and delivery of state and federally funded transportation projects, preliminary engineering tasks for the initiation of priority transportation projects to support funding strategies for the ACTC’s RTP, assist staff with completing reports, DBE and ADA compliance, filing system, audit and resolving transportation related issues.


Lassen County Park & Ride Study

The Lassen County Transportation Commission hired the team of Green DOT Transportation Solutions and Traffic Works to prepare a park & ride study to address the regional and local coordinated transportation needs. Lassen County has at least 4 rogue park & ride facilities used by more than 200 vehicles a day. These facilities are unimproved for the most part and cause major safety and maintenance issues. This project was a concerted effort to identify appropriate locations for the park & ride facilities based on the existing and potential future users of the facilities. We worked with the major employers in the area, land use authorities, Caltrans, and a large stakeholder group to identify existing conditions and programs, users, future improvements and site locations. The final report identified and recommends two formal park & ride facilities. These recommendations were accompanied by preliminary planning and implementation plans.

Point Arena Safe Routes to School

The City of Point Arena, located on State Route 1 on the California Coast, received a 2010 State Safe Route to Schools grant award to improve pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle circulation around the city’s five (5) school campuses. The City hired Green DOT’s Project Manager Jeff Schwein to assist the limited City staff to successfully deliver the project. Project tasks included bid processes for environmental, design, and construction services, encroachment permits, agency coordination, community outreach, presentations, contract administration, invoicing, progress reports, and overall project management. All work was performed in accordance with Caltrans and Local Assistance procedures. The project was successfully opened to the public on schedule, two weeks prior to the 2013/14 school year began.
