Growing in Orlando

Along with client and community partnerships growing in our Orlando, Florida office, so is our staff! We’re excited to announce that Fred Choa, Elizabeth Connell, and Jim Moser will soon join Kathrin Tellez to round out our growing Florida team. Fred will bring a range of transportation planning and traffic engineering services to assist communities in improving multimodal reliability of travel time, reducing congestion, and improving air quality. Elizabeth will get involved in technical analysis, and as we continue to grow, assist in training and integrating new local staff. Jim will bring his design background, expanding on the technical design services provided to clients and communities in Orlando and throughout Florida. We look forward to connecting with you!
