LAND DEVELOPMENT STRUCTURES
Our specialized structural engineering services can save you money on your land development projects that require a bridge crossing or retaining wall. We understand that the design of a bridge on a land development project can be a “deal breaker” if the most economical solution is not determined. As an independent professional engineering firm, Bridging Solutions does not sell any bridge or retaining wall products and is able to give you a comprehensive, unbiased opinion. We will assist you in sorting out the numerous bridge and wall options to determine the application that most closely meets your requirements.
We are completely familiar with all the various proprietary and non-proprietary prefabricated bridge and retaining wall products available in the industry. We also consider and compare the advantages and disadvantages of on-site construction in our review of your project.
We are pre-qualified by FDOT to provide structural engineering services in the following work groups:
> 4.1.1 - Miscellaneous Structures
> 4.1.2 - Minor Bridge Design
> 5.1 - Conventional Bridge Inspection
> 5.4 - Bridge Load Rating
PRIVATE BRIDGE MANAGEMENT
Bridging Solutions, LLC provides very specialized bridge management services for the owners of private bridges. All publicly owned bridges are inspected at least once every two years to meet federal highway law requirements. To insure the safety of the travelling public on privately owned roadways, and to meet the federal bridge inspection standard, all private bridges should also be inspected every two years.
Hiring Bridging Solutions, LLC to inspect your private bridge and manage the ownership responsibility for the bridge are best practice approaches to mitigating the risk associated with private bridge ownership. The cost of our inspection and management services is an excellent investment of a community's annual budget. The biennial bridge inspection process facilitates the early detection of structural defects. The cost of repairs is typically much less when the deficiency is diagnosed early, compared to the cost after the condition advances. We also manage preventative maintenance programs to further protect the owner's investment in the bridge.
