“I know whatever input they give me will be aimed for the best good of the project. HLR understands our limited resources as a county and looks for ways to save the county money. ” City Engineer
“Some of the folks at HLR have spent their entire careers working in the transportation arena, including surveying and signalization. Some of them have probably forgotten more about traffic signals that I'll ever know. There aren't that many firms that have that many people, with that level of expertise, who are also so accessible.” County Engineer
“HLR has the ability to handle a wide range of our engineering needs with one point of contact. They do not require a lot of handholding to complete a task. And they have a good reputation with IDOT engineers. ” City Engineer
“Some of HLR's staff members are industry leaders in their area of expertise. They keep our department's and the public's best interests in mind. When we need something or have a crisis, we call them first.” IDOT Engineer
“HLR's expertise translates into less changes to be made during construction, fewer surprises not anticipated during planning and less unexpected expenditures. Bottom line, their expertise translates into cost savings in an issue in plain English.” Bob Andrews
Retired County Engineer, Vermilion County
