Engineering & Design

Experience with actual field conditions and the complex interaction of bridge components is the hallmark of a Koppers Railroad Structures engineer. Employing multiple engineering disciplines with a myriad of strengths, we strive to offer the simplest solution for repair and design.


Practicality is one aspect we do not overlook. A careful balance is maintained between cost efficiencies and implementation of design and repair. Evaluating our customers' needs and requirements helps to focus our strategy to best solve these issues with a minimum of traffic disruption.


Capacity expansion typically involves upgrades to bridges to handle heavier axle loads. Our engineering staff routinely accomplishes these tasks while taking into account current traffic patterns.
