Jeff Bowen, P.E.
Jeff Bowen, a senior vice president and senior project manager at Hanson since 2013, has 34 years of experience in the planning, design and management of public- and private-sector transportation projects. He has been responsible for environmental studies, concept development, preliminary design and public involvement/presentation, as well as final design elements of both local roadway system projects and improvements to major freeway facilities, including tollways and public-private partnership (P3-financed projects.
Most of his experience has involved helping shape transportation policy for the state of Florida, in particular managing corridor studies for large regions of the state. Recently, he oversaw the East Central Florida Corridor Evaluation Study as part of the state’s Future Corridors planning process. The study, one of the first of its kind in the state, looked at the state’s Strategic Intermodal System network from a regional standpoint for three high-growth counties. Five major existing corridors were evaluated, and four future corridors were identified. The study helped identify and prioritize transportation infrastructure and services to address regional connectivity and mobility gaps for the next 50 years and to develop a more efficient and safe transportation network.
Jeff was also integral in building technology for developments of regional impact, serving as part of a team that authored and updated the Interchange Access Request (IAR) Handbook and helped prepare the nation’s first programmatic agreement for IAR. He has successful environmental permitting experience and has coordinated efforts with significant regulatory agencies, such as water management districts, state environmental agencies, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration and Federal Railroad Administration.
An expert in interstate operations and policy, Jeff managed the National Environmental Policy Act phase of the first reversible managed lane system in Florida (Interstate 595) and assisted the Florida Department of Transportation in obtaining FHWA approval for the express lane pilot project now operational on Interstate 95 in Miami. His other experience includes the overlapping of planning/project development and environment/design (sustainability working advisory teams), efficient transportation decision-making and environmental technical advisory team coordination, access management, complete streets, roundabout evaluation, regional concept of transportation operations, rail operations and transit-oriented developments.
