Driven by Client Success

What makes Spack Consulting different from other traffic engineering firms?

Expertise. Focus. And Flexibility.



Spack Consulting was founded by Mike Spack, PE, PTOE, the recognized industry leader of traffic studies. Mike writes extensively about transportation on his blog MikeOnTraffic and is co-author with his fellow colleague Bryant Ficek, PE PTOE on two industry manuals, The Traffic Study Manual and the Traffic Counting Manual which are used by traffic engineers around the world. Together Mike and Bryant, along with the rest of the Spack Consulting engineer team, provide best-in-class traffic analysis.


For nearly two decades, government agencies, architects, developers, and consulting engineering firms have worked with us because of our sound solutions to their traffic issues. We specialize in four key areas of transportation engineering:

                   + Traffic Studies                        +Travel Demand Management Plans

                   + Parking Studies                      +Traffic Control Design

That’s all we do and we do it well. We believe so strongly in our work that we provide an unconditional satisfaction guarantee, something no other traffic engineering consulting firm offers.


We are available to provide additional support to your current team to complete an existing project or take the lead on a project when you need extra support to get a project done. We even offer a free ½ hour consultation to talk about your project. Call us. We welcome the opportunity to talk about traffic engineering challenges, regardless of whether or not you choose to work with Spack Consulting.
