This week, MJ is celebrating National Transportation Week. National Transportation Week is a way to increase the understanding and appreciation of the transportation industry and celebrate our engineering professionals who keep us on the move. Congress first designated National Transportation Week more than 30 years ago to draw public attention to transportation issues. The transportation industry is an essential function of our nation’s infrastructure and that message from decades ago is still just as crucial today.
MJ has been providing transportation engineering for more than 40 years. From the design of intersection solutions in our local communities to complex interchanges, our goals mirror that of our clients - to keep the traveling public moving safely and efficiently. We understand firsthand the challenges of aging highways and roadway infrastructure and how system improvements impact the mobility, safety, and the economic viability of our local communities.
Make sure to tune in to our social media accounts this week as we continue to recognize the contributions of our transportation professionals and the critical work they are involved in.
Discuss the most challenging project you ever worked on.
"The replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge in Rockland and Westchester Counties. It was one of the single largest design/build contracts for a transportation project in the United States. It had numerous moving parts and pressurized deadlines. The project involved a combination of working remotely and on-site, as well as the coordination of many disciplines that were located around the United States and Canada." - Brian Cooper, PE, Principal/Director of Transportation
Talk about how you got to your career as an engineer.
"Growing up, I loved to build things with Legos and really thought the idea of designing roads and bridges was pretty cool. Now it is just so rewarding to see something that you designed get constructed and have an impact on so many people." - Eric Williams, PE, Principal/Vice President
