“When a project makes a tangible impact, and I can see fewer conflicts and traffic is flowing better, I know I've made a difference,” says intelligent transportation systems (ITS) engineer Jeff Hochmuth. Jeff has over three decades of experience in the transportation field, and his broad experience covers a mix of public and private sector experience.
Jeff has extensive integration, operational, technical, and management experience after spending the past two decades in the private sector, working, and managing numerous traffic projects around the world. He has served as manager of the Illinois DOT statewide ITS program, spending most of his public sector experience in expressway operations and managing complex ITS computer systems.
Jeff currently helps clients like the Illinois Tollway Authority make ITS planning and operations decisions, including on projects like the I-90 SmartRoad Corridor. As he puts it, the best parts of his work are “interacting with people- our clients and my colleagues. I love hearing new ideas and solving problems.”
When asked why he has remained at the firm for over three decades, Jeff says, “the people and the reputation. I find myself surrounded by people who are truly passionate about their work. On top of that, I'm proud of our reputation, known for going beyond a client's basic requirements, delivering solutions that are of the highest quality possible.”
