Michael Wagner, PE, was among the Top TDM Professionals under 40 recognized by the Greater Valley Forge Transportation Management Association. Wagner, who is Vice President and Practice Leader of Urban Engineers’ Ports & Waterways Division, has 13 years of experience in the full gamut of transportation projects with expertise in waterfront port facility, bridge and roadway design. His impact on the region’s transportation network is significant, ranging from extensive work on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Widening from Valley Forge to Norristown to rehabilitating historic waterfront facilities.
In 2013, he completed the award-winning Schuylkill Canal Restoration and Multi-use Trail Project in Upper Providence Township. Through his leadership and proactive project management, he helped Montgomery County restore the 180-year-old canal towpath and close a significant gap in the Schuylkill River Trail. The new pedestrian bridge and trail connection under Route 29 provides 30,000 annual bicyclists and pedestrians with safer passage, and presents an invaluable transportation and recreation alternative to surrounding communities. Appreciative of his efforts, Montgomery County selected Urban to design a second phase that will further enhance this section of the Trail.
