Roadway / Bridge
Roadways and bridges are the cornerstone of our nation’s infrastructure—enabling trade, powering businesses, spurring economic growth, and getting people connected.
Traffic maintenance, utility relocation, environmental permits, drainage needs, and the latest stormwater management regulations—these are all factors you must pay close attention to throughout the life of your roadway and bridge design projects. Additionally, you will be planning horizontal and vertical geometrics to ensure the smooth and safe flow of traffic, estimating costs accurately to stay within budget, and developing comprehensible plans and specifications to avoid unnecessary construction delays. With all this in mind, you need the partnership of a practiced consultant who possesses the expertise and resources to ensure your project is completed to your specifications, in a timely manner, and within budget.
