Our transportation facilities project experience includes design for new construction, reconstruction, and rehabilitation of state highway, local, and residential roadways, and intermodal facilities. Construction alternatives that are commonly involved in our designs include: pulverizing, cement treated base, cement concrete paving, asphalt concrete paving, porous pavements, and chip seals.
Elements of these projects include coordinating survey, public involvement, right-of-way, access control, and a variety of other transportation issues. These projects have been constructed with local, WSDOT, Trans Aid, TEA-21, TIB, and private funding sources. In addition to surface designs, DCG is also experienced in providing signage, striping, and temporary traffic control plans in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and local design standards.
