THE MOBILITY INFRASTUCTURE EXPERTS FOR SERVICE PLAZA OPERATORS, FUEL COMPANIES, AND TOLL ROAD AGENCIES
With each assignment, our firm starts with “The Vetted Vision”: A thorough and documented examination of the opportunity in order for others to see the potential that you see today. Our team is skilled in producing all necessary demographic statistics, gathering traffic and accessibility information, performing financial feasibility analyses, conducting due diligence investigations and entitlement analysis, and developing the support of stakeholders and collaborators.
With our multi-disciplined team approach, AJW+A is routinely engaged to perform a comprehensive review and analysis of an existing or proposed portfolio of motorist-services facilities on US toll roads and the Canadian National Highway System.
With a deep understanding of the value of the public asset, we partner with the public sponsor to attract a large field of interested parties for your public-private partnership opportunity.
Recently, AJW+A has led efforts to establish new on-highway service centers for the E-470 Public Highway (Denver Metro), new ground-up Travel Plazas on the West Virginia Turnpike, and the Province of Alberta, Canada. This work involves a deep understanding of the underserved motorist in each market as well as the "hurdle rates" (i.e. minimum sales and fuel volumes to be a viable enterprise).
RFP/Solicitation Process Management
AJW+A is widely recognized as a leader in the management of the complex proposal response process on behalf of companies interested in public-private partnerships.

Project Agreement Review and Negotiations
Expanded Truck Parking Development
A recent survey conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, in collaboration with the American Trucking Associations and the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, estimated that there is one truck parking space for every 11 drivers in the nation, with a total of 313,000 spaces available.
AJW+A is experienced in spearheading the expansion of truck parking through its proven process:
Quantify the demand for a specific area or highway segment.
Selection of suitable locations with the necessary infrastructure to support drivers.
Conduct feasibility study to assess viability of the parking facility, local market, zoning regulations, and potential environmental impacts.
Secure funding which may include government grants, private investment, or a combination of both.
Develop a design/site plan taking in consideration a number of factors such as number of spaces, access and egress routes, and the provision of any necessary services (food, restrooms, etc.).
Obtain necessary approvals from local and state government agencies, including planning departments and transportation authorities. Environmental impact assessments may also be required.
Once approved, the construction process can begin which would include site preparation, grading, paving, and the installation of necessary services such as restrooms.
