Bridge Sized Culverts



Bridge sized culvert projects tend to span the full spectrum of civil engineering, from hydrology to structural to highway design.  Environmental concerns are often very prominent, and right-of-way must be secured.  Roseke Engineering is recognized as one of Alberta’s foremost engineering firms for bridge sized culvert projects.

Bridge sized culverts provide a solution that are more economical than a bridge but require a greater flow restriction.  Hence, they require excellent knowledge of hydrology and hydraulics, as well as the structural and geotechnical aspects of culvert structures.  Roseke Engineering’s bridge engineering team has designed and managed hundreds of bridge sized culvert projects and we can ensure the highest level of service and safety of the travelling public.

We are prequalified by Alberta Transportation in the category of Standard Bridges and Culverts as well as class B bridge inspection.  We are often involved in the inspection and planning as well as the project execution stage.

Our services encompass the entire project life cycle of a bridge sized culvert, from inspection and assessment through planning and construction.
