TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING

Highway

LDG’s Highway Engineering legacy is paved with successful projects of all sizes, from interstates to rural roads. Our success is fueled by our ability to provide innovative solutions for all aspects of highway design that minimize costs, while meeting schedules. Properly evaluating projects early in the design process is critical to determining the most prudent cost-effective design to carry forward and ensure available funds are optimized.

 

Bridge Design

LDG Bridge Designers have been connecting communities with award-winning bridge replacements, new constructions, and rehabilitation projects since 1989. Our design experience includes vehicular, pedestrian, railroad, equestrian, and aqueduct projects. Our expertise in historic preservation and our ability to deliver context sensitive solutions have established us as leaders.

 

Bridge Inspection & Maintenance

LDG Bridge Inspectors have extensive experience completing NBIS bridge safety inspections for PennDOT and local municipalities. LDG currently inspects 600+ local bridges within PennDOT Districts 2-0, 3-0, and 10-0. Without missing a deadline, LDG has inspected 5,000+ of bridge structures and completed 730+ load rating analyses since 1989.
