Here at Bonton Associates, we’re big fans of MoveBR, the largest and most significant transportation infrastructure investment in East Baton Rouge Parish history. Its proposed project scope of 70+ new capacity improvements and community enhancements is raising the standard of living for residents, revving our area’s economic engine and realizing the future so many of us have hoped for and imagined.
Our company mission — to lead communities toward a safe, sustainable water and transportation future — is right in line with MoveBR’s vision, and we’ve been fortunate to work as prime engineering contractor or subcontractor on more than a dozen of the initiative’s projects. Because of our focus on water and transportation, MoveBR has been a great fit for our expertise and experience, particularly on projects where these disciplines intersect. And it’s especially gratifying to contribute to such positive progress in the city we call home, where so many of our team members live, work and play.
