who we are


Our philosophy is simple -

The greater purpose is more than moving traffic safely and efficiently;

it is to help create a sense of place, to enhance livability,

to help shape a community.

about our firm

SRF Associates provides distinguished professional transportation planning, engineering and design consulting services to communities and private clients throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Communities have a vision of their future, developers want to see a return on their investment, and people demand transportation options.

SRF works with you to develop solutions.


In 1985, this firm was organized in recognition of the need for such specialized services. We offer expertise in Traffic Impact Analysis, Traffic Operations and Safety, Transportation Planning and Design, Access Management, Active Transportation Plans, Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety, Traffic Calming, Thoroughfare Makeover and Revitalization, Highway Design and Permitting, Signal Design, Municipal Technical Reviews, Transportation Demand Management, and Parking Solutions.

We realize the need to evaluate development within the holistic context of land-use patterns that are driven by local decision-making and planning. We take an integrated approach to balancing growth and mobility while satisfying the goal of safety and equity for all users of the transportation system, especially pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as respect for conservation of open spaces. SRF strives to enhance the quality of life for all.

word on the street


what people say about us

"It was clear from our first meetings that the SRF team encompassed outside-the-box creativity and a genuine interest in the well-being of the community. Our staff continued to be impressed with your team's approach as well as your adaptability to the unforeseen complications that come with just about any planning effort. We ended up with a final product that is very impressive as well as useful. Already, not even one month since the plan was completed, there are numerous project recommendations advancing toward implementation."
