Conley Recognized with 2023 VTrans Highway Safety Award

MONTPELIER, VT — Jenn Conley, PE, PTOE, VHB’s Vermont Director of Transportation Systems, took home a 2023 Highway Safety Award presented by the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance (VHSA). VHSA, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), and the State Highway Safety Office saluted Conley and other highway safety professionals at an award ceremony for their endeavors to elevate safety for all who use Vermont’s roadways.

Conley's tenure as VTrans’ go-to Project Manager for statewide safety efforts began in 2020 when VHB helped coalesce best practices from within the agency and other DOTs nationwide into a practical and proven-in-the-field work zone safety policy. Continuing this partnership, VTrans has since relied on the VHB project team under Conley's leadership for knowledge and staffing resources to support all of its key transportation safety initiatives.

“With her collaborative, team-first spirit and constant attention to connecting people with each other and with the right information, Jenn personifies the trusted consultant role that VHB strives to provide for VTrans and all of our clients,” said VHB’s Vermont Managing Director, Dave Saladino, PE. “She has thoroughly proven herself as a worthy candidate for this award, and we all applaud her for this honor.”

Her team’s ongoing management of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) has been their most complex and far-reaching VTrans safety project to date. They drove the development of a data-informed approach to identifying crash-contributing factors and high-risk locations on the roadway network to prioritize VTrans’ safety investments. Conley also helped VTrans initiate a local HSIP grant program to address safety on rural roads.

“Our team has put a lot of thought and effort into the HSIP program,” Conley said. “We’re looking at transportation safety more systemically and evaluating which countermeasures are most effective to really move the needle on safety for everyone on Vermont’s roads. I’m so honored by this award that recognizes the VHB team’s important work.”
