Transportation Services: Roads & Rails

AKRF has more than a quarter of a century of experience in completing environmental reviews and environmental impact assessments for large transportation initiatives.

Because transportation projects affect the character of our communities in many ways, AKRF’s multidisciplinary staff provides the full range of services in environmental, planning, and engineering service areas to complete a full NEPA-compliant document and other environmental studies. Our deep technical knowledge, comprehensive resources, strategic work approach, and intimate familiarity with environmental regulations help us resolve our clients’ issues quickly to satisfy their project goals.

AKRF understands the intricacies of local, state, and federal environmental regulations, and has strong working relationships with federal transportation agencies, such as the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). As we also specialize in permitting services, we can coordinate the review processes to move complicated projects through federal approval from beginning to end.
