Traffic congestion in Mandi City will be further exacerbated by the increase of population in years to come. The goal of this project was to make Mandi City more attractive and navigable to tourists, visitors, and residents through the implementation of safer and more efficient traffic patterns. We conducted qualitative interviews with local stakeholders and collected quantitative data through evaluation of traffic flow. The analysis of our data indicated that Mandi’s existing infrastructure cannot support its traffic trends, confirming a need for traffic alleviation. Based on stakeholder feedback, we generated a set of recommendations that will mitigate traffic congestion and ultimately make Mandi a safer and more pleasant destination.
