Thank you Bill Polhemus and Stan Caldwel for your inputs. They were very
helpful. Bill, would you please tell me what  "TSPE" is.

Too small.  WAY too small.  Check out the TSPE design fee curves.

    For non-seismic areas, I recommend a fee of at least 6% of construction
cost.  If the bridge is "small" or unusually complicated, you might need as
much as 10% of construction cost.
