The Lesner Bridge is arguably Virginia Beach's signature bridge and boasts an average annual daily traffic (AADT) count of over 20,000 vehicles. The City of Virginia Beach set a goal to produce a bridge with a 100-year lifespan that incorporated new aesthetics and safety measures.

RS&H, as the prime CEI consultant, is providing Construction Engineering and Inspection Services for the widening of 5.5 miles of IH 45 between Houston and Galveston from six to eight interstate mainlanes and six lanes of frontage roads.
This innovative and cost-effective design-build project comprised the design and construction of 6.1 miles of roadway, including a limited access toll road and a non-tolled local road in Lake and Seminole Counties, Florida.
The Sawgrass Expressway opened in 1988 but fell three miles short of I-95, forcing vehicles destined for I-95 to utilize the local road networks, including SW 10th Street. Since the original studies, several unsuccessful attempts were made throughout the decades to make this three-mile connection.
RS&H was part of the consultant team that developed and analyzed alternatives for the Grand Avenue Bridge replacement. RS&H provided project management, bridge and structural design, roadway alternatives, hydrology, traffic, environmental assessment, and post-design services.
