“There is no greater inspiration than being part of a group that’s working to solve a difficult problem or create an innovative solution. I enjoy knowing that I’ve helped someone reach their goals and made a difference in my community,” Tim Sorenson says. As the firm's practice leader for transit and urban mobility, Tim's focus throughout his three-decade career has been on creating holistic transportation solutions for his clients. He’s passionate about projects like complete corridors, which address mobility needs, infrastructure requirements, and environmental impacts through a lens of sustainability, resulting in safe, community-centric transportation infrastructure.
Tim feels the greatest sense of accomplishment when projects move effectively from planning into construction. From the simplest intersection improvement projects at the start of his career to the more complex urban multi-modal transportation projects he now works on, Tim has always been driven to help clients get their projects through the planning process, funded and into construction.
Whether it is crafting an effective and safe roundabout on a college campus, connecting historic communities around a major river crossing or creating groundbreaking bus rapid transit systems, Tim is successful in bridging diverse options and perspectives to create resilient solutions with a Vision Zero framework that’s safe for all users. No matter the size or scope of a project, Tim believes that collaboration with both internal and external stakeholders is the key to successfully implementing projects.
