News releases 2016

Atkins, one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, will help U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Operations to reduce congestion and improve mobility across the nation’s highways.

Under a $132 million multiple-award contract, Atkins will help improve the safety and efficiency of the U.S. transportation system by accelerating the deployment and integration of innovative technologies.

“We need to reshape traditional approaches to managing our transportation system,” said Bill Winkler, director of Atkins’ federal business unit. “The implementation of technology is key to improving mobility for travelers, moving freight more efficiently and improving highway operations. We look forward to helping FHWA achieve these objectives in their support of state and local governments.”

Atkins will develop guidance and training; oversee pilot deployments of technology, including connected and automated vehicles, and promote FHWA best practice initiatives.

Atkins has provided more than 30 years of transportation program management services to various federal, state and local agencies.
