Road And Highway

A Smoother Ride

Stretching more than 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) across six continents, our road and highway projects circle the globe. Far from simply moving people from place to place, our smart corridors help move people into the future. From traditional to integrated delivery methods, our expertise includes complex interchanges, tolling and integrated corridor management.

Atlanta’s Northwest Corridor
As lead designer on Atlanta’s Northwest Corridor—the largest transportation project in Georgia’s history—we helped improve the region’s connectivity. It included 29.7 miles of reversible toll lanes, 39 bridges, 100 retaining walls, 120 overhead signs, automated control, and monitoring.

As transportation departments face increased congestion and aging infrastructure, our experts are prepared with innovative strategies. We’ll save time, maximize value, mitigate traffic impacts, and enhance safety as we work to improve community connections.

Our complete service offerings include the following:

  • Planning, design, development, and construction
  • Analyzing and resolving traffic impacts
  • Navigating the environmental process
  • Asset management
  • Construction engineering and constructability
  • Technical concepts and modeling
  • Intelligent transportation systems

As an integrated solutions provider, we can design, build, and develop roadways through multiple delivery methods. These include design-build, public-private partnerships (P3s), and design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBFOM).

Emergency Transportation Operations

Getting You Home Safely

We know nothing is more important than arriving home safely. Our Emergency Transportation Operations (ETO) team is helping people across the United States do just that. Our ETO division is a leader in traffic incident management (TIM) services focused on safety for responders and the public.

Traffic accidents happen, and it’s important to have the right resources ready in advance. Our ETO team includes traffic incident management trainers with decades of real-world experience. Members have experience as fire/rescue personnel, law enforcement officers, towing and recovery professionals, and Department of Transportation (DOT) project managers. Incident management professionals deliver coordinated programs to better detect and remove incidents quickly, safely, and efficiently to keep traffic flowing. The sooner traffic moves, the better the chances of avoiding deadly secondary crashes.
