As a leading independent professional liability insurance brokerage offering customized civil engineers errors and omission insurance policies and risk management solutions, our team at Fenner & Esler is proud to showcase the projects and successes of our clients.
Fisher Associates’ traffic expertise is widely recognized, as demonstrated by their sole source designation by the NYS DOT to provide real time, 3D traffic, and visual simulations for the reconstruction of the I-590 and Winton Road Interchange. The NYSDOT assessed three feasible design alternatives for the interchange and Winton Road corridor. The options included the relocation of the I-590 interchange ramps, triple left turn off ramps, the addition of Senator Keating Boulevard, and six multi-jurisdictional signal controlled intersections.
Fisher Associated worked closely with the NYSDOT Region 4 Planning and Programming Group. Their first task was to provide traffic volume forecasts and capacity analyses to evaluate the potential impacts and benefits associated with each design alternative. Complex simulations were provided for alternatives that included a triple left exit ramp and variations of partial cloverleaf interchanges.
The final alternative involved an innovative Diverging Diamond Interchange, one of the first applications in the United States.

Given the risk involved in large-scale engineering projects, our expert team of engineer’s professional liability consultants at Fenner & Esler conducted a comprehensive review of Fisher Associates’ insurance coverage to ensure they had sufficient coverage for the significant liability risks associated with the project. Additionally, our risk management professionals reviewed the contracts related to the project to prevent Fisher Associates from assuming more than their fair share of responsibility for the traffic study and engineering services they provided.
