More About Our Headquarters:
The office is 10 minutes from Dulles International Airport and the Dulles Toll Road, allowing for easy travel to and from the area.
Our corporate office has provided engineering services and support for the entire country, and has been especially active in our Mid-Atlantic and Central Northeast regions. Our work on the Springfield Interchange and Capital Beltway HOT Lanes have helped to alleviate traffic in Northern Virginia.
The Transform 66 project is another record-breaker for RECo that we are proud to be involved in. It will expand the original I-66 corridor that we helped engineer in the 1970’s.
In New Jersey, you’ll find one of our most prominent arch bridge structures, George Street Bridge near Rutgers University. Many of our solutions involving high settlement are located in the coastal areas of the state.
Pennsylvania is known as one of the states in the nation with the most bridges, and we are continually providing solutions for upgrades to deficient and obsolete structures, new bridge abutments, and arch bridges.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, our MSE walls can be seen supporting tracks and bridges for the Lynx Blue Line commuter rail system.
