BKF built its reputation on our ability to plan, design, and successfully implement Public Works projects. Our transportation team has extensive experience with a wide spectrum of transportation projects; ranging in size and complexity; projects requiring approvals from Caltrans, the California Transportation Commission, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Rail Administration, the CPUC, UPPR and local agencies; and projects sponsored by Self-Help Counties, regional and congestion management transportation agencies, and numerous Cities and Counties.

When improvements are required in the State right-of-way or when federal funding is involved, BKF is your trusted advisor. Having worked hand-in-hand with District Local Assistance and Permits Departments and each of Caltrans' functional units including project management, environmental, design, and right-of-way on a multitude of projects, our engineers have a unique insight to what is required and what is expected to navigate through the Caltrans process. Our Caltrans experience spans all phases of project delivery including planning, environmental clearance, design approval, and construction assistance.
