“Teamwork is essential, and CDM Smith’s CEI team is successful because we are committed to teamwork,” says transportation CEI project manager Joell Lytle. With over a decade of experience at CDM Smith, Joell is responsible for the performance of 20+ field staff, monitoring project schedule, budget, and performance of inspection work while leading multiple construction management teams. She currently manages approximately 30 projects within the firm.
Her projects include new bridge construction, bridge rehabilitation, roadway rehabilitation, and traffic signal work. Her ability to understand and interpret PennDOT requirements ensures that projects are in compliance with state and federally funded requirements.
Her recent notable CEI projects with PennDOT include an $88 million rehabilitation of Interstate 279 and a $70 million roadway reconstruction of Interstate 376 outside of Pittsburgh. What makes Joell such a reliable partner, according to one of her PennDOT clients, is that “she is dependable, always on top of her priorities and willing to go out of her way her way to meet the needs of the department.”
“CDM Smith offers a lot of opportunities to grow, and that’s certainly true with our CEI practice in Pennsylvania. I enjoy watching our team grow as we win projects,” Joell says.
