Scott Janowiak

CFIRE project assistant Scott Janowiak was recently hired by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. He will work as a program and policy analyst in the Division of Transportation Investment Management, Bureau of State Highway Programs. In this role, he will serve as the central coordinator for the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).

During his time at CFIRE, Janowiak worked mainly on two research projects: Maintenance Quality Peer Exchange 2 (MRUTC 08-15) and Air Cargo in the Mid-America Freight Coalition (CFIRE 04-11). In addition, he played a key role in the organization of the 2012 National Transportation Workforce Summit.

Janowiak graduates in Spring 2012 with a Master’s degree and Urban and Regional Planning with a certificate in Transportation Management and Policy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was also the recipient of the 2012 Muzi Fellowship.

“It’s important for engineers, planners, and policy analysts to understand each other’s language,” said Janowiak. “CFIRE and TMP have given me the tools to learn these languages and translate between them. CFIRE and TMP form a solid foundation of transportation knowledge and experience I can reference as I begin my career.”

Join us in congratulating Scott Janowiak as he starts his new position.
