Advancing Bridge Safety

We partner with our clients to obtain a clear understanding of the present and future railroad bridge inventory, traffic volumes, car weights and operations, including future plans to increase volume or load capacity. We work every day to improve systems, procedures and practices related to bridge safety management. This includes making sure bridges have been inspected according to schedule, reports are reviewed and filed correctly, load rating capacity is adequate for expected traffic, and repairs are initiated and completed as engineered using correct materials and workmanship.
