Improving Transportation Systems for Tomorrow

At MNS, we work with you and strive for a common goal: quality, innovative projects that meet cost and schedule expectations. We will work with you every step of the way to ensure we achieve project success together.

Transportation Systems are a Way of Life

Taking an afternoon stroll through your neighborhood, riding your bicycle on a scenic coastal path, driving on local roads to run errands, or using major freeways and bridges to reach distant destinations all have one thing in common: people’s lives revolve around transportation systems.

Eventually, all transportation systems see typical wear and tear, need emergency repair when a natural disaster strikes, or require expansion to accommodate population growth.


Our Areas of Expertise

Pedestrian and Bicycle Facilities

We have completed numerous studies and designs for pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Our team has significant experience with implementing designs that adhere to standard industry and agency specifications and guidelines while maintaining Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. Our project experience includes sidewalks, safe routes to schools, bicycle paths, multiuse paths, trails, intersections, traffic calming, and bicycle master plans.

Vehicular Transportation Systems

Whether your project requires pavement maintenance and rehabilitation, emergency repair, or new systems and structures design, MNS has the experience and expertise to provide the optimal solution. We understand special funding, agency, and Caltrans requirements and the need to protect the surrounding environment.

Our project experience includes local roads, pavement rehabilitation, streetscapes and beautification, medians, roundabouts, intersections, parking, highways, interchanges, and bridges.

Public Transit Systems

Much like the services we offer for vehicular systems, we understand the complexities and requirements to meet your needs while remaining compliant with agency and ADA requirements. Our project experience in this growing market includes bus facilities, trains, rails, freight, park and ride facilities, and airfield facilities.

Traffic Engineering

At MNS, our team includes Traffic Engineers for your traffic planning and engineering needs. Our Traffic Engineers identify, investigate, evaluate, and implement intelligent solutions to meet the overall goal of implementing modern transportation systems. They are proficient in studying problems and replacing old solutions with modern results that deliver increased safety, operations, and longevity into low- or high-capacity transportation systems.
