Whether we’re recommending improvements for a single intersection or helping communities plan for automated vehicles, we love tackling transportation challenges through planning, operations, design and research. We’re a diverse, interconnected group of 250 people (representing 19 different countries) working in 26 offices around the United States. Kittelson is truly “one office in many locations.”
It all started more than 30 years ago, when founding principal Wayne Kittelson realized his dream to create an environment where transportation experts could collaborate through meaningful work, empower their communities, and grow as individuals. While we’ve expanded since then, our unwavering values have always guided our approach.
Continually striving to “raise the bar” in the profession is one of our longstanding values. We do this in many ways, including our commitment to meaningful and lasting participation in local, regional, and national research that dates back to our early days as an organization. We are proud to have authored many of the manuals and guidance documents that are used in the transportation profession, and we are also energized to put that work into practice each and every day.
Simply put—we are defined by our people. That's why one of Kittelson's strongest values refers to following our passion, because our people are the future of the firm and the profession. We don't often brag, but we feel lucky to be part of such a talented, energetic, collaborative, accomplished and driven group.
