Bridge, Highway & Rail Division
Getting from A to B requires a means at which to do so. Traveling by car is about as mainstream as it gets – though without roads, highways, tunnels, and bridges, we wouldn’t get very far. By train? Beyond the obvious need for rails, the same applies. Walk? That is fine, but most people can’t leap over streams more than a few feet wide. Bridges are necessary here, too.
Transportation relies on bridges, highways, and rails, and McLaren has long served the needs of public and private clients with efficiency and technical expertise. With experience in above and underwater inspections, report preparation, load rating and structural analysis, and design, we help preserve humanity’s basic need to travel.
Equipped with underwater bridge inspectors, rope-access inspectors, and a design team that features expertise in all facets of bridge engineering, McLaren’s Bridge Division is able to meet any project challenge, while optimizing the use of available funds. And, as important, we understand the unique demands of certain projects – like minimizing interruptions to railroad operations, or maintaining and protecting traffic during construction.
