Damaged or failing roadways and bridges can be a source of frustration as well as a serious safety hazard for the people in your community. But rehabilitating or replacing them isn’t always easy. People don’t want to be inconvenienced. Property owners may not want to give up their land to make space for improvements. And, we all want to protect the environment. Addressing the needs of all parties while doing the right thing for the general public can be a balancing act that requires much more than the right engineering solution.
Get solutions that work—technically and socially.
Engineering cost-effective, long-lasting and low-maintenance rural highways, urban streets and bridges takes an in-depth understanding of emerging trends and best practices combined with a solid knowledge of what works from both the design and construction perspectives. We work closely with municipalities, counties, Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) to prepare plans, environmental assessments, right-of-way plats, specifications and bid documents for highway and bridge projects.
We supplement our proven technical experience with an innate understanding of how to work with roadway users and local stakeholders to make sure needs are understood and addressed before, during, and after construction. From leading the public engagement process to managing all aspects of property acquisitions, we help you address the social aspects of your project as effectively as the technical requirements.
