Redden celebrates 20 years of service at Hanson

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — John Redden, P.E., a senior railroad designer at Hanson Professional Services Inc.’s Kansas City metropolitan office, recently celebrated 20 years of service with the company.

At Hanson, he plans industrial rail yards, analyzes train operations and designs track alignments. He also provides analysis and permitting of “quiet zones,” in which trains do not sound their horns when approaching crossings. He manages projects that involve state transportation departments, transit agencies and major railroads.
