Our multidisciplinary transportation team offers decades of experience in rehabilitating and improving rural roads and highways as well as bringing roadways up to current standards.
RESPEC’s roadway engineering capabilities span the entire planning and designing cycle, from surveying, environmental, and geotechnical services to master planning and civil engineering. Our cross-disciplinary reach enables our team to efficiently and effectively pinpoint geometric design improvements and safety upgrades. We can support projects from the beginning to completion with condition and improvement evaluations, cost estimating, survey and permitting, right-of-way agency coordination, engineering design and construction documents, construction services, and field inspections.
Throughout the process, we emphasize cost-effective and proven solutions that make the best use of existing facilities. Our experience in working in some of the most demanding environments and challenging geographies in the U.S. has provided us with specialized insights into strategies for slope stabilization, permafrost and aufeis mitigation, drainage improvements, and fish-passage culverts. Our extensive involvement with environmental permitting further enables our team to anticipate and address potential impacts to wetlands and other natural and cultural resources before design begins.
Our planners and engineers are equipped with the skills, capabilities, and know-how to design for the current needs and future capacity of our clients. The RESPEC transportation team provides for planning smoother, safer roadways and a longer infrastructure lifespan.
