Bridges & Structures
Similar to our clients, no two bridges are the same. Structures connecting two areas have unique challenges and requirements. That’s why we provide individual attention when we carefully design, construct, and rehabilitate various types of bridges. We also build and perform work on structures, including retaining walls, memorials, culverts, precast structures, noise walls, barriers, and mechanically stabilized earth walls (MSE’s).
Fort Myer stands out for our successful completion of highly technical projects in an assortment of challenging environments, ranging from the most densely populated, high traffic urban zones to historical structures located in restricted and treasured areas of our nation’s capital. Bridges, highway interchanges, transit projects, specialized foundation work, and overlays are part of our everyday work.

Fort Myer has extensive experience with the most complicated utility work, including the repair and construction of storm drains, sanitary sewers, water mains, duct banks and vaults (we are a PEPCO-approved utility contractor), water retention systems, and underdrain systems.

Curbs, sidewalks, bike paths, and parking lots provide the means by which pedestrians and vehicles can access a location.

FMCC adheres to civil construction standards such as those set by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ATSM International), ensuring the final products are constructed to the highest quality.
