INDIANAPOLIS – Joe Guerre, PE, joined HNTB Corporation as national practice consultant, bringing more than two decades of experience on tolling and multi-disciplinary infrastructure projects.

In his role at HNTB, Guerre will focus on strategic planning and traffic projects with a focus in the areas of tolling, asset management and long-range planning.

Guerre’s past projects cover a wide range of topics, including transportation planning, tolling, transportation finance, performance management, transit planning, project prioritization, asset management and risk management. He has helped establish the national agenda in these areas, and worked with numerous state and regional agencies to implement custom approaches.
“We are pleased to add Joe to our toll leadership team as we continue to grow and meet the needs of clients throughout the country,” said Kevin Hoeflich, HNTB chair toll services and senior vice president. “His diverse array of infrastructure expertise will continue to build on HNTB’s role as a trusted advisor to toll agencies and state DOTs across the nation.”
Prior to joining HNTB, Guerre worked with another consulting firm as leader of its Indiana practice, responsible for managing client relationships and identifying, pursuing and executing high-level projects. He was project manager for a study evaluating the feasibility of tolling Indiana’s interstates and preparing a summary report for the Indiana legislature. He also was project manager and assisted the Indiana Department of Transportation in presenting long-term needs and revenue options to the Funding Indiana’s Roads for a Stronger, Safer Tomorrow Task Force.
Guerre holds a master’s in civil engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a bachelor’s in civil engineering from Purdue University.
