RockSol Consulting Group, Inc.

Transportation Engineering

RockSol has participated in the engineering and design of roads, highways, bridges, and transit infrastructure for several notable transportation projects.

Transportation Engineering

Our experience

  • Design work for VelociRFTA SH 82 Bus Rapid Transit, the first rural bus rapid transit system in the US. Design innovations included retaining walls and separate facades to accommodate differential lateral deformations and differential settlements.
  • Bridge, roadway, and geotechnical engineering design for Airport Road over Plum Creek Bridge Replacement
  • Advisory support for Colorado’s first roadway bridge replacement using accelerated bridge construction (ABC) utilizing Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT)
  • Complex modeling o roadway cut-slopes and benches, and development of 3-dimensional proposed digital terrain model surfaces, for the US 85 widening project.
  • Design and construction support for RTD’s FasTracks corridors and multi-modal transportation hub, Denver Union Station, which introduced new transit technologies to the region
  • Structural and engineering design, public outreach, and inter-project corridor coordination for several of the I-25 North Forty Reconstruction Design projects: I-25 between 120th to SH 66, I-25 between SH 66 to SH 56, and I-25 between SH 392 and SH 14. 

Transportation Design 

RockSol’s engineers bring experience in the management of numerous environmental assessments and impact studies; preparation of plans, specifications, and estimates (PS&E) for final design; and participation in post design and value engineering studies. RockSol’s team members have experience in cradle-to-grave project delivery from the preliminary design of projects – starting with the initial scoping, budgeting, and planning – to interdisciplinary and stakeholder coordination necessary to finalize project designs and PS&E, and finally through the construction and maintenance of the transportation improvement asset. RockSol’s transportation engineering experience includes roadway design, incorporating horizontal and vertical geometry, pavement, earthwork, drainage ditches, and cross-culverts. 

Value Engineering

RockSol has participated in value engineering (VE) studies to assist in cost savings analysis and to improve the value, performance, and quality of a project. Our Team offers experienced engineers to provide VE recommendations, who are familiar with the AASHTO Guidelines for Value Engineering. We have proven abilities in the value engineering process, including analyzing design functions, cost, value performance, and quality; identifying alternatives; evaluating life-cycle cost alternatives; and developing value engineering recommendations.

Stakeholder Coordination 

RockSol engineers understand the importance of working with stakeholders to develop mutually beneficial and context sensitive design solutions. Our project managers have extensive experience coordinating with project owners and stakeholders and working with the design teams to ensure their unique project needs are incorporated into project designs. Our experience includes assisting the design teams with project coordination and conducting outreach with numerous agencies while providing public involvement and stakeholder coordination support, as well as coordination among the adjacent design projects to align goals and initiatives.
