On August 1st we welcomed a new face to the TPD family: Thomas Walter, formerly of PennDOT District 5-0. During his 35-year career with the District, Tom has become an expert in traffic and operations, including ITS, engineering studies, traffic signals, traffic signing, pavement markings, railroad crossings, roundabouts, and operations / maintenance. His previous roles at PennDOT included Assistant District Traffic and Operations Manager, as well as Roundabout Coordinator. During this time, Tom was also involved in the establishment of the District’s ITS and Communications Center (now known as the Traffic Management Center). Tom will, without a doubt, strengthen the existing comprehensive traffic signal, ITS, and traffic operations services TPD provides our clients. To contact Tom with questions or about an existing or potential project, please email him or call him at: 215.622.2525.
In September 2015, TPD welcomed Louis Hufnagle to the family as a Project Manager, focusing on Municipal Services. Louis’ background is in public sector work, with over 12 years of planning experience working with both Chester and Delaware County Planning Departments in Pennsylvania. He has had a major hand in transforming the region’s highways, roads, bridges, streetscapes, greenways, as well as bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities. In addition to assisting counties and municipalities in the preparation of studies and development of recommendations for improvements, while working for Delaware County he also served as an advisor to Delaware County Council and the County Executive Director on numerous transportation projects.
