A safe and efficient transportation system is critical to providing access and connections for people and goods to spur economic growth and improve quality of life for users. The highway and roadway system is a crucial part of that transportation system and is at the heart of services Michael Baker provides to our clients and partners. We work with entities to enhance and maintain roadways across the country to serve all modes of transportation. For more than 80 years, we have helped to shape America’s highway network. We provide comprehensive highway planning, design and construction services from conceptual and preliminary engineering studies through final design, construction management, inspection and closeout.

Our highway design and construction services projects include major freeways and expressways, new roadway corridors, design-build projects, public-private partnerships, complex urban interchanges, rural roads and urban streets, intersection improvements and streetscapes. We utilize our vast experience, expertise and innovative ideas to assist clients in improving lives through a well-thought-out and implemented transportation system.

"Michael Baker has been helping clients deliver transportation improvement projects for decades. Each project improves safety and mobility while extending the useful life of the transportation infrastructure. We have a proud legacy of innovative solutions in transportation that enhance the quality of life and the economy throughout the country and the world."
