Roads and highways solutions must be long-term, sustainable, and cost effective, from local access roads to major urban and rural strategic routes. We drive those same roads alongside you, with our children in the back seat, so improving safety, easing congestion, and extending street and highway life are always priorities.
The design of highways, roads, and streets requires a delicate balance between the physical demands of a project, the realities of constraints faced by owners and operators, and the need for design to recognize the setting of the asset in the environment. From feasibility studies to planning, design, procurement, construction supervision, and post-construction assessments, engineering expertise is required to ensure optimal efficiency and safety, while minimizing costs and environmental impacts. DKE experts work on bringing these benefits to towns and cities every day. DKE has designed highway, road, and street projects around the country. Our civil engineering teams apply innovative designs to the delivery of long-term sustainable solutions for construction of new roads and streets in urban and rural environments, as well as widening and improvement of existing roads and highways. The scope of our expertise extends to conceptual studies, preliminary engineering, and detailed design of rural and urban highways, arterial streets, and neighborhood streets.
DKE’s cost-effective designs help clients to improve safety, ease congestion, extend street and highway life, and improve mobility. We deliver design solutions using state-of- the-art design software, including AutoCAD, Civil 3D, InRoads, Infraworks, GeoPak, MicroStation, AutoTurn, and SignCAD.
