For more than five decades, SME has been servicing local government and state Departments of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and airports across the nation to design and rehabilitate their transportation systems. Our road and street, bridge, and runway engineering solutions address the transportation industry’s toughest challenges.

Drive on nearly any interstate in Michigan, cut across the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, or land at Detroit Metropolitan Airport or at military airfields throughout the United States and you’re riding on SME work. As leaders in pavement and geotechnical engineering, our experts have pounded the pavement, literally, from coast to coast.

Our team’s intimate knowledge of state and federal design methods and construction specifications is coupled with innovative thinking and extensive experience with state-of-the-art procedures. For example, for nondestructive pavement evaluation, SME is one of only a handful of companies in the Great Lakes Megaregion to own and operate a Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD), which enables advanced testing of pavements that has saved our clients time and money on numerous projects. SME is also a leader in utilizing pavement recycling techniques including Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) resulting in signification savings in construction costs while helping out our environment.

Our extensive experience of over 50 years and groundbreaking transportation industry solutions have resulted in countless prestigious awards and recognition. More importantly, our work has won the satisfaction and loyalty of the organizations we serve. We consistently pave the path to success by saving money, reducing maintenance costs, and delivering quality, high-performing pavement and infrastructure solutions that meet clients’ goals and requirements.
