Our team includes

  • David Sullivan Manager of Highways & Transportation Planning
    David Sullivan

    David has been a leader in the traffic engineering and transportation planning field for over 30 years. He has seen and helped shape the transformation of transportation priorities, from a vehicle centric industry ton industry that now focuses on safety and access to the transportation system by all users. Among the type of studies he has lead through the years are large mixed use developments, sports facilities, urban and suburban corridors, downtown superblocks, and educational and professional campus settings. Integral to these efforts were multimodal evaluations and complete streets solutions. David has significant experience related to parking studies. This includes evaluation of multiple facilities within town/city centres; individual multiuse projects where shared parking demand by users was evaluated; and operational evaluation of various parking strategies and on-street dynamic parking studies.
