Design-build specialist has helped deliver successful megaprojects
38, Deputy Project Manager
Throughout his 17-year career, Taylor has focused almost entirely on major design-build infrastructure projects. That emphasis began at the start of his career, when Taylor was assigned to work on the Route 895 Pocahontas Parkway project in Virginia. On that project, he served as a bridge design engineer in charge of overseeing the balanced cantilever, span-by-span and cast-in-place segmental erection of the James River Bridge. Taylor later was named tolling and traffic management systems manager and was charged with overseeing the design, implementation, testing and commissioning of all toll-system elements of Virginia's $2-billion 495 Express Lanes project. The contract proved to be a huge success, opening to revenue service one month ahead of schedule and earning the Intelligent Transportation Society of America's Best ITS Project award in 2013. Currently, Taylor serves as the deputy project director for the 95 Express Lanes project in Virginia, which has a short, 29-month schedule.
