When considering project delivery, negative public opinion can delay a project for months, maybe years. Wolverine will work with you to achieve community support by implementing a comprehensive education and awareness program. This requires that key public groups understand and agree on project issues. Specifically, there are three communication objectives:
- Ensure understanding of the need for the project
- Identify the concerns of project stakeholders
- Develop an awareness of the project analysis and decision-making approach
An effective public involvement program is flexible, where aspects are adapted to the needs of the community and the site. Involvement should begin early to assure that all public concerns are considered from the beginning. Wolverine has designed and implemented successful public involvement for a wide variety of clients, projects, and constituents. Our transportation design staff successfully delivers projects for urban and rural roadway systems including feasibility studies, project design surveys, right-of-way plat preparation, pavement design, roadway geometrics, drainage, preparation of construction plans, cost estimates, traffic control, permanent signing, noise analysis, environmental documentation and public involvement.
