The legal issues are similar to anything safety related, so check out the threads on using stamps, as well as some in the past few months about non-engineers doing engineering work, etc.  Basic needs and obstacles are covered in threads dealing with setting up your own business.

There are also threads on setting up a corporation v. partnerships v. sole-propietorships.  The tax ramifications, liability questions, E&O coverage, etc.  All business stuff and not technical nor specific to the type of engineering you are practicing.

I have gone through all the threads and there is bunch of information about doing consulting business which is not related to any specific field. And all this information is really great.

But I specifically wanted to ask if anybody has done or doing consulting for bridge and raodway design, specially for DOT works?

I think that lot of people do consulting for civil/commercial/residential/drainage/buildings work but have not seen many working on bridge/transportation design.

Any specific advice related to this fields?
