Highway Design

From a small local or federally aided bridge replacement project to a 30-mile, $120 million roadway reconstruction project on the New York State Thruway, the C&S highway design group are leaders in the industry. We use state-of-the-art three-dimensional modeling, project web sites, cost estimating, and critical path construction scheduling to meet project schedules and budgets. We have designed highway projects for towns, villages, cities, counties, and state departments of transportations, as well as for toll authorities and private developers requiring permitting.

C&S knows that highway projects require a balance of many components that begins by identifying the project goals, developing a design that includes community input through informational meetings, addresses property and environmental impacts, utility coordination, mobility and safety improvements, and is constructed within budget and schedule.

Our decades of highway design experience includes site development, walking trail improvements, new access roadways and campus parking, and all related site civil needs. Our design teams are specialized in geotechnical evaluations, including slope stability, pavement treatments, traffic signals, including interconnect design, street lighting, stormwater modeling and management, utility relocations, streetscape, specific requirements on the national highway system, and right-of way acquisition.

Environmental studies include cultural and historic resources, air and noise analysis, potential contaminated materials investigations, endangered species, wetland delineation and mitigation, and related permitting from the regulatory agencies.
