RS&H has 80 associates in Texas (architects, engineers, planners, and environmental specialists) in five offices, including Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Tyler. In this issue, we have chosen to highlight a few that specialize in environmental services, including Tyler’s new office leader.
Training & Development
The Training and Development program at RS&H aims to provide associates with continual opportunities to improve their professional skills and to become leaders in their respective fields. Last year in the Tyler office, our associates participated in OSHA safety training, obtained a number of TxDOT pre-certifications, attended a TxDOT environmental conference, completed project management boot camp, and joined a variety of professional organizations.

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.
