TPD's Dave Azzato, P.E., Senior Transportation Leader

Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. is pleased to welcome David J. Azzato, P.E. to our firm as Senior Transportation Leader, operating out of our Harrisburg, PA office location.

Dave joins TPD after a 36-year career at the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), principally in PennDOT’s Central Office. After serving in various roles in the Highway Delivery Division, Contract Management Division, Design Services Division, and the Bureau of Construction and Materials, Dave was promoted to Chief of the Highway Design and Technology Section within PennDOT’s Bureau of Project Delivery. Dave has experience managing policies and procedures related to highway design and technology, providing quality reviews, and overseeing project schedules.

Dave has earned several prestigious awards throughout his career, most recently the Governor’s Award for Excellence and the Secretary of Transportation’s Award for Excellence. A Penn State graduate, he is a registered professional engineer in Pennsylvania, and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Society of Highway Engineers.

In his new position with TPD, Dave will provide oversight for highway engineering processes and procedures, conduct quality assurance reviews, and assist in the development of new projects. He will assist with project deliveries and serve as a project liaison. He will take a lead role in pursuing and developing public projects in Pennsylvania, with a focus on the central and western areas of the Commonwealth.

We anticipate that Dave’s experience and skillset will facilitate TPD providing better and more extensive services to our current clients, as well as help to develop new client relationships.
