Mike Singleton, Principal Transportation Planner, says “although KTUA has been conducting transportation and complete streets planning and design for over 20 years, having Tom on board provides additional credibility to our services. His focus on bicycle and pedestrian transportation is built on a great understanding of how a street can be made to function more completely, and his passion for getting involved in the national level discussion on making changes to the rules and regulations that govern changes in our street environments bodes well for our company and clients.”
