PRIME AE offers a full suite of highway, traffic, planning, and bridge engineering services for transportation systems that keep our communities moving, connecting people and places in a safe and cost-effective manner. We employ a practical design approach to minimize costs, while always looking to provide innovative and context-sensitive solutions that blend highway and bridge projects into the surrounding environment and communities while meeting the goals of the project.
We build effective connections within and across communities.
Featured Transportation Projects
Meet Our Transportation Leadership Team
Transportation asset management maintains the availability and integrity of physical assets throughout the lifecycle for optimal performance.
Bridge Repair & Rehabilitation
We update designs and engineer structural improvements for modern bridges and historical restorations.
We provide guidance for the development, design, and engineering of city streets and transportation facilities to prioritize and improve transit quality.
Design Project Management
Organizing, planning, executing, and managing transportation design ensures a successful project from beginning to end.
We facilitate collaboration between the engineer and the contractor to complete final design and construct transportation solutions to drive innovation, reduce schedule, and transfer risk to the design-build firm.
Provide services that link physical systems to a digital infrastructure, such as broadband, EV charging Infrastructure, ITS and toll systems, Internet of Things, smart cities, AI/ML data analytics, automated vehicles, and mobility as a service.
Our experience working on government projects at the federal, state, and local levels, including various Departments of Transportation can help inform your grant writing effort.
Highway, Pedestrian, and Bicycle Safety
Our services plan and design improvements to the transportation system to accommodate all modes of transportation and all users through a safe systems approach.
Highway and Roadway Design
Hydrologic/Hydraulic Studies and Analysis
We provide insight into the movement of water and how it impacts transportation and roadways to design effective transportation structures.
Independent Quality / Technical Reviews
Our independent reviews provide actionable information and recommendations to improve and maintain the safety and integrity of transportation systems.
Intersection and Safety Design
Load and Rating Analysis
Our services determine the transportation impact for existing and future transportation improvements using the latest tools that model the traffic and roadway conditions.
We provide design and engineering services to facilitate the construction of transportation systems and supporting facilities.
We assess how transportation systems respond to various demands, such as citizen complaints, new land development, programmatic safety improvements, corridor studies, and transportation improvement projects.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Facility Design
We plan and design transportation facilities, including sidewalks, bike lanes, shared use trails, ADA curb ramps, and pedestrian bridges, to accommodate pedestrians, bicycles, and vulnerable users,
We understand and help navigate the complexities and requirements of DOT and other regulatory permitting.
We support clients in procuring goods and services to plan, design, operate, and maintain transportation systems. Services may include technical advising, procurement documents (i.e., RFI, RFP, RFQ) and post-award service support.
We support clients managing a transportation program, which may include staff augmentation, on-site staff support, and leadership to ensure the program meets its goals and objectives.
Project Controls (Scheduling, Claims Analysis, Cost Estimating, and Value Engineering)
We help plan, monitor, and control all phases of your transportation project lifecycle to stay on schedule, manage risk, and maximize value.
Project Development and Environmental Studies
Project development and environmental studies help determine the feasibility of roadway improvements, as well as their environmental impact, weighed against regulatory mandates.
Right-of-Way Acquisition and Management
We assist in the acquisition of land rights when necessary to build or enhance highways, roadways, and transportation systems.
Risk Assessment and Management
Transportation risk and asset management helps to develop processes and systems that quickly, effectively, and reliably respond to changing logistics and transportation concerns.
Roadway and Bridge Inspection
Roadway and Drainage Design
We provide designs that implement effective drainage to build safe and environmentally synergistic roadways.
Roadway Safety Design
Studies / Assessments
Transportation studies and assessments help promote greater insight, needed improvements, and best practices among transportation systems.
Surveying and Mapping
Our transportation surveying and mapping utilizes the latest technology to collect important field data to facilitate infrastructure planning, design, and construction.
Traffic Engineering & Intelligent Transportation Systems Design
We design improvements to transportation systems that improve safety, mobility, and reliability, such as sign design, pavement markings, guiderail, traffic signals, vehicle detection technology, traffic cameras, message signs, roadside units and road weather stations.
Traffic Signal Operations
Our services improve arterial operations and coordinate signal timing patterns based on different peak traffic periods through data collection, traffic simulation models (Synchro, VISSIM, etc.), signal controller settings, and fine tuning of timing adjustments.
Our traffic studies examine the characteristics of highway system users and vehicles to determine system operation, identify problems, and make improvements.
Transportation planning considers present and future community needs, goals, policies, investments, and designs to inform transportation design needs.
Transportation Systems Management and Operations
We provide systematic review and analysis of a project from concept to design to make recommendations for cost-effectiveness without adversely impacting project functionality or timeliness.
