Transportation Engineering

Our approach to transportation design begins with meticulous study of your unique objectives and concerns …

… In our half-century of transportation engineering, we’ve learned that success demands understanding of every facet of your project: schedule requirements, budget constraints, community impacts, and more. Our experience runs deep—beginning with survey, mapping, and design for the nation's fledgling interstate system in the 1950s. Today, we serve the evolving needs of state DOTs and toll roads throughout the eastern United States. Railroad owners, municipalities, and private ventures also depend on Erdman Anthony’s expertise. For outstanding results on your next bridge replacement or rehabilitation … highway or local street project … or rail assessment and repair recommendations, turn to Erdman Anthony—where the design process won’t begin until the listening process is complete.
