Road & Bridge Services

We are committed to each project’s success by delivering superior engineering through our focus on roadway projects – from neighborhood streets, to 24 lane freeway expansions, to brand new tollways. Moreover, we are dedicated to delivering peace of mind through listening, taking ownership, keeping commitments, and staying in touch.


Choosing the most economical pavement section or the most effective method of pavement rehabilitation is complicated, it is easy to choose a method that doesn’t provide sustained performance.  Through review of the types of pavement distress, non-destructive testing, and selection of appropriate pavement materials we determine how to best extend pavement life and reduce life cycle costs.


Bridges are varied structures ranging from at grade simple spans over small waterways to cable-stayed bridges spanning thousands of feet. HVJ provides economical solutions for bridge foundations that are constructible given right-of-way and traffic control limitations.

Retaining Walls

We design and provide construction materials testing for retaining walls that meet project profile requirements for challenging cut and fill locations in a wide variety of situations such as poor foundation conditions, conflicts with existing structures, and limited right-of-way.
