As a champion of Practical Design, Brian understands the need to stretch every transportation dollar given the reality of shrinking funding sources. He is actively involved in the Transportation Research Board (TRB) as a member of the Geometric Design committee (AFB10), the Operational Effects of Geometrics committee (AHB65), a panel member of NCHRP Project 07-23 Access Management in the Vicinity of a Freeway Interchange, a panel member of NCHRP Project 15-56 Ramp Design Speed and a member of the Context Sensitive Solutions Subcommittee.
Brian is known as one of the nation’s top geometrics engineers and has contributed to projects with a combined total estimated construction value of over $8 billion. Brian excels at bringing innovation and creativity to the study and design process to uncover cost-effective solutions for DOTs. Read about his approach to one of these solutions - Diverging Diamond Interchanges (DDIs) - in this Point/Counterpoint Analysis.
Brian attended The Ohio State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.
