MEET OUR TEAM
Mallory Maldino, EIT
Mallory earned her B.S. in Civil Engineering at Southern Polytechnic State University. She began her career in traffic engineering while still in school, working as an intern with a previous company that was founded by Vern over ten years ago.
Mallory has gained a wide range of experience including conducting a variety of traffic studies, producing designs for traffic signal modifications/installations and Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS), and developing signal timing for individual intersections and coordinated signal networks. She is proficient in using industry tools such as MicroStation, Vissim, Synchro, Sidra, GuideSIGN and others.
Mallory’s Key Project Experience
I-20 at SR 138 Interchange Improvement, Rockdale County, GA
Mallory conducted an evaluation of alternate interchange configurations, including a Single Point Urban Interchange and a Diverging Diamond, and prepared an Interchange Modification Report (IMR) which was approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 2018.
Advanced Traffic Management System Design, Paulding County, GA
Mallory was involved in the development of plans for a new Traffic Control Center and an Advanced Traffic Management System made up of a network of 30+ miles of fiber for Paulding County, Georgia.
Statesboro Soccer Complex, Statesboro, GA
Mallory completed a traffic study for a large multi-use development, including a new professional soccer stadium, hotels, restaurants, and various retail, in Statesboro, Georgia. She also completed the design plans for two new signals which were determined to be warranted by the study. In the process of signal permitting, she aided in the utility coordination with Georgia Power and the City of Statesboro.
Bright Star DRI, Douglasville, GA
Mallory conducted a study to evaluate the impact of a 600,000 sq. ft. facility in Douglasville, Georgia. This project was determined to be a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) under the jurisdiction of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA).
Newnan Street Coordinated Signal Timing, Carrollton, GA
Mallory developed and implemented timing for a coordinated network of 9 traffic signals for the City of Carrollton, Georgia. Different timing plans were developed for different days of the week and times of day to best accommodate the variety of traffic patterns experienced in the area.
Vern Wilburn, PE, PTOE
Vern is a recognized expert in traffic engineering. Throughout his 40+ years of experience in the industry in both the public and private sectors, Vern worked as a public servant as the City Traffic Engineer in Shreveport, Louisiana and as the County Signal Engineer in Cobb County, Georgia, started and grew a Traffic Engineering Department for a previous firm, and founded his previous business, which grew to be a successful traffic engineering and traffic signal installation business.
Vern has authored many technical publications for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), including the first GDOT Traffic Signal Design Guidelines and Signing and Marking Design Guidelines while working on the first GDOT Statewide Signal Design Contract in the late 90’s. He also prepared the first major redesign of the GDOT Driveway and Encroachment Control Manual in 2003.
Vern’s expertise includes ATMS and Traffic Control Center Plans, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Traffic Studies, Traffic Signal Design, Signing and Marking Design, and Signal Timing. He has also been working with the GDOT throughout much of his career, from which he has gathered knowledge of GDOT policies and procedures and significant experience facilitating the review, approval, and permitting by GDOT of many different types of projects.
