Highways and Bridges

Just as the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 and the creation of the Interstate System improved travel throughout the United States, today’s investments in infrastructure and transportation systems will be a legacy provided to move future generations.  Today’s transportations networks remain the means by which people and services and goods are moved and one, if not the top, economic driver for communities.  So what will the future of transportation look like with autonomous (self-driving) vehicles, ride sharing, big data analytics, increased intelligence/communication among vehicles and the surrounding environment, urbanization of society, livable-workable communities, and most importantly transportation funding?  Although no one can predict the future, S&ME can assist in planning, designing and constructing your program to meet your investment and accessibility goals and needs.

Understanding that future transportation funding cannot be solely funded from gas tax and assessment fees, we recognize that innovative funding mechanisms and private funding will become more normalized.  Such private funding will demand more comprehensive planning details and accelerated delivery schedules. S&ME has a history of providing extensive resources and technical expertise to produce cost-effective, practical solutions for a variety of delivery methods including Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build, CM at Risk and Public Private Partnerships.
