Bursich Expands Transportation Practice by Hiring Kaufman

Mon July 14, 2014 - Northeast Edition

Civil Engineering and Survey firm Bursich Associates has bolstered its continually growing transportation practice with the hiring of Eric M. Kaufman. He brings more than 20 years of traffic and transportation design experience to the firm.

Kaufman’s comprehensive experience includes managing federally and state funded projects through the PennDOT approvals process, representing municipalities as traffic engineer in both a review and design capacity, and assisting the land development community by obtaining municipal approvals on their behalf. In addition to the traditional transportation projects such as traffic signal design, transportation impact studies, and highway design, Kaufman has experience with non-traditional traffic alternatives projects such as walking paths, curb ramp design, and traffic calming projects. He also has significant experience with grant writing, construction inspection projects, and streetscape projects.

"Eric is a seasoned engineer that positions us well for the increased workload that will result from the passage of Act 89 by Pennsylvania’s legislature, which will provide for an estimated $2.3 billion in transportation funding over five years," said President Scott A. Exley. "He will actively manage our workload to ensure that we continue to deliver results for our government and engineering clientele."
