Mark serves as vice president and Transportation program manager for the Southern region of the country. He is also the Roundabout Community of Practice chair, applying the Ourston brand to MSA’s portfolio. Mark has spent roughly half his 30-year career specializing in intersection design and safety reviews, with the other half on the study and design of modern roundabouts for national, state, county and local agencies. He is a leading engineer during an era of expanding use of roundabouts in North America—with experience covering all aspects of policy, planning, design, public outreach and research surrounding roundabouts.
In that time, Mark has undertaken hundreds of feasibility studies, peer reviews, design audits, in-service evaluations and studies comparing roundabouts with other types of innovative intersections and interchanges. He leads a roundabouts-specific team of professional engineers and aims to build a legacy of superbly operating roundabouts. His depth of knowledge and experience provides unparalleled value in roundabout planning and design to state, county and local agencies alike.
