About working on the bridge:

We’re very fortunate to have an extensive role in both the survey and design of the MRB project…(a)s a DBE/MBE firm, working as a sub-consultant to companies like CH2MHill, CTE/AECOM, CMT and HNTB has given us a wonderful opportunity to build strong partnerships to tackle such a large project. The experience working on the New Mississippi River Bridge has been extremely valuable, and we look forward to developing our experience with similar MoDOT and IDOT projects.
