Bridge and Roadway

It can be argued that access is the most critical parameter to the growth of an area and roadways are the major means of local access in today's times. Proper planning can assure that an area will be accessible in the inevitable event of future growth. Where roadways meet obstructions, bridges are required to continue the roadway. Whether it be water crossings, interchanges, or grade separations, HGA has the experience to deliver. HGA has experience in coordinating with local and state governments as well as private bridge owners. Our knowledge of GDOT bridge design policies facilitate the review process and allow for timely permitting.
