Bridge & Structure Design

Bridging the gap between providing safe crossing and minimizing impact to the environment.

LaBella has been providing bridge design for over 30 years! Our team has worked on a variety of rehabilitation and replacement projects, ranging from locally owned, low-volume bridges and culverts to state agency-owned, high-volume interstate bridges. We are able to provide a full array of services on bridges, including structural design, preventive maintenance and element-specific repairs, in-depth inspections, load ratings, hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, supporting services, and construction support.

Pulling a Mussel: LaBella Engineers Extract a Bridge Over Endangered Species Habitat

How do you remove an 89-year-old, 160-foot-long, steel thru-truss bridge without disturbing the water below it? That was the challenge faced by LaBella’s construction engineering team, who were hired by Ramsey Constructors to develop the plan.
