I wish I had something like this when I was their age.” – Nana Fares. Nana had a great time learning about the Schuylkill River Trail and taking a tour with the girls of Transportation YOU last month! She is excited to share her knowledge and help girls enter the engineering arena.

KMJ Consulting Helps Celebrate Another Successful Year at Transportation YOU

“Stand up, speak up, and let your voice be heard” is an example of guidance that Karen Jehanian gave to WTS Philadelphia Transportation YOU participants. Transportation YOU is a program that offers young girls insight about transportation careers through interactive events and mentorship.
On June 16, 2018, Karen Jehanian engaged these young women and their parents in a lively discussion about work, life, leadership and having fun! During this End of Year Celebration, she encouraged them to be the bright light in a dull room.

 

Green City, Clean Waters – American Street

Big Impact from American St. Green Features

We're excited to bring green infrastructure improvements to the American Street revitalization project that's now underway in Kensington South. On top of adding new natural landscaping features to the corridor, these green tools will soak up 1.4 million gallons runoff every time it rains!

Awesome effort by the entire project team – Gilmore, JMT and KMJ Consulting. KMJ led the stakeholder engagement, designed curb ramps and traffic control. The Philadelphia Department of Streets, Philadelphia Water Department and Department of Commerce are great clients. We’re so excited to see American Street under construction!
