John N. Johnson, P.E., has been promoted to vice president. Johnson is the manager of the firm's civil engineering group in Charlotte.
With more than 20 years of experience as a project manager and design engineer, Johnson has overseen improvement projects for a wide range of assignments, such as interstates, major and minor thoroughfares and intersections. He is currently managing the design of the I-485/I-85 interchange, a design-build project, which will complete Charlotte's outer loop. The unique design is called a "turbine" interchange; there are only a few such interchanges in the United States.
Last September Johnson traveled to California to attend the National Academy of Engineering's 2011 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, which has an extremely competitive nomination process. The annual three-day meeting brings together 100 of the nation's outstanding young engineers from industry, academia and government to discuss pioneering technical and leading-edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors.
Johnson earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University. He is a member of the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina, American Society of Civil Engineers North Carolina Section and the American Public Works Association.
Johnson resides in Matthews, N.C.
