To support the firm’s commitment to providing expert transportation services in the Southeast, LJB has hired Tommy Pate, P.E., as a Senior Traffic Project Manager and Technical Advisor. Working from LJB’s Raleigh, NC, office, Pate focuses on traffic forecasting, traffic impact analysis studies, parking studies, and design.
Pate brings 17 years of experience in traffic engineering, including projects with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), other state and local government organizations, universities, and private developers.
