Urban Engineers was presented with the 2023 Engineering Leadership Award at GVF’s 33rd Annual Meeting. The award represents the firm’s well-earned respect as a leader in the industry, as well as a commitment to transportation demand management advocacy.


“We at Urban are proud to be recognized as an engineering leader by GVF,” said Urban Vice President and Philadelphia Regional Manager Jennifer Waters, PE, LEED AP. “Our firm and employees are committed to creating sustainable infrastructure projects for our clients and supporting communities.”


Ms. Waters also served on a regional TDM leaders panel at the annual event. The panelists shared why they are actively involved in GVF, what their companies are doing to support and implement TDM, and how each of them, as GVF board members and female leaders in our industry, see the region’s future progressing.
