Freedom of Movement

Communities that invest in modern roadways and transit systems are often praised for their quality of life. We help those communities serve their citizens with advanced, efficient, and beautiful transportation infrastructure. Drawing from decades of experience and the latest engineering software tools, our transportation team helps clients turn their ideas, plans, and goals into thoroughfares teeming with movement.

Highway and Toll Road Design

Our engineers design with sensitivity to all factors, from safety to function to aesthetics. Often, we use alternative geometric design approaches to balance these factors with budget, schedule, constructability, and lifecycle cost considerations. The result is a roadway that complements the environment, serves the people who need it, and meets the objectives of the developers.

Route Studies and Schematic Design

The best route between points A and B is rarely a straight line. Our engineers analyze the complexities and factors that go into the route plan, always putting public safety at the forefront. Our studies look at all options for building a transportation project to determine the optimal design. Working closely with all stakeholders, we analyze whether existing facilities should be enhanced and if new routes should be constructed.

Transportation Structures

Walter P Moore engineers are leaders in the design of all structures that are vital to modern transportation systems, including bridges, tunnels, culverts, and many more. We utilize advanced software tools and follow rigorous design standards every step of the way, solving for variable loading conditions, long-term reliability, budget and schedule constraints, aesthetics, and sustainability.

Hydrology and Hydraulics

Our hydrology and hydraulics specialists regularly apply their expertise to save public transportation agencies millions of dollars in drainage improvements. We use the latest technologies to run various rainfall and surface sheet flow and pipe flow models, which allows us to predict the impact that proposed transportation projects will have on regional watersheds. From there, projects can be designed for optimal water management.
