BOSTON – Today HNTB Corporation marks its 65th anniversary of service to transportation agencies in Massachusetts. The firm’s presence began with the opening of an office in Boston in 1954. HNTB has operated continuously since then serving numerous local public and private clients, including the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, Massachusetts Department of Transportation and Massachusetts Port Authority. Currently HNTB has two locations in Massachusetts, including Boston and Chelmsford, and employs approximately 200 professionals.
HNTB has played a significant role in delivering major elements of Massachusetts’ transportation infrastructure network, including Boston’s iconic Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge, the Massachusetts Bay Area Transportation Authority’s Green Line Extension, Boston’s Casey Arborway project, Fitchburg Commuter Rail Line Rehabilitation and numerous major projects throughout New England, such as the Portsmouth (NH) Memorial Bridge Design-Build Replacement.
HNTB’s expertise in design, program management and construction management of highways and bridges, transit and rail, aviation, toll facilities, and tunnels is helping transportation agencies address and manage transportation infrastructure and mobility challenges as the region continues to grow. Since 1954, the Commonwealth’s population has grown from approximately 4.7 million to almost 7 million.
