Based in Lisle, Illinois, Kamran Khan has an extensive background in tolling-related studies, which he believes are integral to supporting financing for highway projects around the United States. “These studies don’t sit on shelves. They are used to advance projects expeditiously,” he says, “and the projects can make a real difference in people’s lives by improving travel times and increasing connectivity within regions.” As a trusted advisor to his clients, Kamran has amassed significant experience in travel data compilation, toll travel demand modeling for existing and new toll facilities, interstates and managed lanes, toll revenue forecasting, financial feasibility, and cost-benefit studies. He serves as a senior advisor and reviewer for major toll revenue studies within the national practice and has been involved in major privatization studies of transportation infrastructure assets around the country.

When Kamran isn’t at the helm of our Transportation Delivery & Finance team, he’s been known to enthusiastically bust a move with bhangra (a traditional Punjabi dance) at parties and weddings, despite causing his family some minor embarrassment.
