HNTB Releases White Paper to Help Agencies Navigate Federal Transit Administration Discretionary Grants

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A new HNTB Corporation white paper explores how transit agencies can ensure they select the right delivery approach, optimize the FTA Oversight Process and assemble the right team when navigating the discretionary grant process.

The white paper, "Optimizing transit construction projects," is authored by Cheryle Tyson, HNTB national transit/rail consultant, and Susan Schruth, HNTB national practice consultant, rail.

"Transit agencies that apply for Federal Transit Administration discretionary grants to fund construction of their infrastructure projects face critical decisions at every stage of project development ... because few grantees sustain capital construction programs large enough to maintain project management staff in-house, they can better navigate these challenges by drawing on project management expertise from project consultants."
