Last month, GBA welcomed Eileen Yang, P.E., PTOE, to our Traffic Group team. Eileen is a specialist in traffic simulation and travel demand model development and her background includes several significant study and modeling jobs throughout the Midwest.
Eileen has completed travel demand forecast models for clients such as the City of Olathe, the City of Liberty in Missouri; the cities of North Platte and Norfolk, Nebraska; the Ozarks Transportation Organization in Missouri and the Flint Hills MPO in Kansas. She also completed travel analysis for special events at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and developed a VISUM model for downtown Kansas City, Missouri, as a whole.
Her traffic study experience includes work for MoDOT and KDOT, as well as traffic impact work for cities and developers for projects in Olathe, Fort Scott and Bonner Springs, Kansas; and Independence and Kansas City, Missouri.
She has also supported transit studies, especially on ridership forecast and multi-modal transportation analysis for KDOT’s I-70 corridor, State Avenue in Wyandotte County, Kansas, and the North Oak corridor in Kansas City, Missouri.
Eileen holds a master’s degree from the University of Kansas in civil transportation planning and traffic engineering. Her bachelor’s degree in civil engineering comes from Hefei University of Technology in Hefei Anhui, China.
“We are very excited to have Eileen leading our travel demand modeling efforts,” said associate Mandy Anderson, P.E., PTOE.
