RS&H’s Steve Cote contributed an article in October to the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) news update, Inside Lane. His article explains the purpose of the Georgia Department of Transportation’s I-75 study, which will form the policy blueprint and proposed course of action for future transportation system improvements of the corridor through the year 2040.
The December issue of Roads & Bridges featured the RS&H-designed Topsail Bridge, which links Topsail Island, a 26-mile long barrier island, to the North Carolina mainland.
According to RS&H Project Manager Chad Critcher, the bridge replaced a very popular swing span bridge but, there were many environmental, economic, and social factors the team had to consider when identifying the placement of the bridge. What grabbed the attention of Roads & Bridges was the enormous amount of public input solicited by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
RS&H’s Chad Critcher, National Market Leader of Design-Build Major Highway Projects, was recently featured in Transportation Builder magazine as a rising star in the transportation design and construction industry.
The design for upgrades to the main runway and taxiway at the Toledo Executive Airport in Milbury, Ohio, will be starting soon. In a recent article from AviationPros.com, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority wants to extend and resurface taxiways at the airport. The taxiway route was built in 1991 and needs resurfacing.
RS&H is the port authority’s general consultant for the airport and will be responsible for completing the design work and preparing construction bidding documents. Construction to extend and resurface the taxiways should only take three months once funding from the FAA is approved.
The Manassas Regional Airport in Manassas, Virginia, recently won the Award of Merit in the Airports/Transit category of the Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) 2013 Best Projects.
In a recent article by American Towns, the project involved extending the primary runway at the airport. RS&H was the prime consultant and provided design, permitting, and construction management services for the project.
