Our transportation professionals are ready to provide multimodal solutions to challenges and mandates faced by state agencies and local authorities, as well as municipalities and developers.

Project Management Associates provides planning, design, and construction management services for municipal and rural streets, bridges, traffic signals, and roadway lighting. Services for route surveying include locating utilities, roads, streams, man-made features, boundary lines, and topographical information necessary to prepare construction plans, easements, and right-of-way maps.

Field functions are automated using GPS and Total Stations Systems with data collectors that are downloaded and uploaded directly from state of the art civil engineering design programs.
Office functions include deed research, preparation of easement descriptions and exhibits, and utility research. We work with appraisers, realtors and lawyers in the acquisition process; prepare right-of-way maps and the corresponding legal descriptions; and obtain rights of entry.
