Krista Goodin, AICP
For long range transportation planner Krista Goodin, success is a byproduct of initiative. “I learned at an early age to proactively go after something if you want it,” she says. “Don’t wait for someone to give you permission if it’s the right thing to do.”
Applying that mindset, Krista has successfully led multidisciplinary teams on projects involving multimodal transportation, environmental, and land-use planning challenges for clients like the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) and South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). With well over 20 years of experience, Krista excels as she combines transportation, environmental concerns, and community outreach efforts to provide a cohesive approach to every project.
Krista assisted with the completion of SCDOT’s first Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study for the Interstate 526 Lowcountry Corridor EAST. She managed the update of the Connecticut Statewide Freight Plan in compliance with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) freight planning guidance and also leads the development of CTDOT’s I-95 Eastern Connecticut PEL Study.
“The sense of support you get at CDM Smith is different than what I’ve experienced at other firms. I enjoy my colleagues in my office, as well as those from across the company who I work with on projects. The team structure here minimizes micromanagement and encourages results,” she says.
