For years, road and bridge projects of all shapes and sizes have been built off of plan sheets cut by engineers. Even with the advent of three-dimensional (3D) modeling, designers have still relied on two-dimensional plan sheets to take their concepts to construction. But there is a shift in design mentality developing in the [...]
With the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) as clients, RS&H is helping shape the present and future of mobility in Northeast Florida. RS&H is leading with the evaluation and design of express lanes on Interstates 95 and 295, the implementation of the First Coast Expressway, as well as the [...]
We are in an industry surrounded by change. We have seen and heard of the latest in new and emerging technologies that will change the way we know transportation. When, where, and how this change will impact each of us is still to be determined with the biggest debate being the “when.” While we may not know exactly when certain technologies will take off, we know they are on the horizon because of the amount of money projected to fund key emerging technology sectors. But what is being talked about now that could boost our timeline?
RS&H’s video team takes to the skies with some new drone footage of a YMCA project in Jacksonville, Florida. The Winston Family YMCA opened its doors in August 2016. The state-of-the-art facility is a manifest of the Y’s commitment both to rejuvenating a community and to helping reduce chronic illness and improve health. You [...]

Connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technology will ultimately reshape our entire transportation industry. The change is already happening — 41 states have either introduced or enacted autonomous vehicle legislation since 2012, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. But, to move to widespread adoption of CAVs and the smart infrastructure needed for [...]
The tolling industry has a lot to gain - or lose - from technology's rapid advancement. While the macro-effect on the tolling industry from some of the newer technologies (e.g. connected and autonomous vehicles) will not be fully understood for quite some time, there are other advancements currently being implemented that will have a more immediate effect.
Leo Fernandez has a vision for what the architecture field can look like. A vision for more accurate building models and more streamlined asset management. He sees a future where stringent U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) requirements are commonplace practices for designing any facility. “When you compare DoD requirements to normal industry standards, the [...]
