Peter Wroblewski, P.E.
Pete is a Senior Civil Engineer with over 10 years of experience across both the public and private sectors in project and program management, roadway design, construction oversight, and complete streets design. He has worked on federal, state, and local projects in Illinois, California, and Massachusetts. Pete currently resides in Nashville where he’s expanding HSH’s business to Tennessee.
Prior to joining HSH, Peter oversaw the County of Santa Barbara pavement and asset network as the Asset Manager. Peter brings his expertise in pavement assessment, treatment selection, design, and construction oversight of a myriad of treatments from fog seals and slurry seals, to full-depth reclamation projects.
O’Brien’s Corner Improvement Project Town of Agawam – Agawam, MA The project focuses on safety improvements for pedestrians and cyclists navigating the intersection, while maintaining vehicle operations. The design will tighten the radii of Maple Street intersecting with Springfield Street to provide traffic calming. A slight alignment shift in Springfield Street to the west of O’Brien’s Corner will provide a traffic calming effect as drivers approach the intersection. The existing traffic signals will be upgraded to include new pedestrian posts, countdown indication, APS/vibro-tactile pedestrian push-buttons, video detection, and emergency vehicle preemption. It includes the design and implementation of BMPs for sedimentation and erosion control. Finally, the bus stop along Route 14 within the project limits will be made ADA-complaint. Peter provided independent engineering review and comments on construction plans. He also provided specification revisions for the scope of work.
Facilities Engineering Services On-Call Department of Conservation and Recreation – Various Locations, MA HSH is providing planning, design, and construction services for DCR under an on-call contract. Currently HSH is assisting with Road Safety Audits (RSAs) at high-crash locations along the Arborway in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston. The intersection of the Arborway at Centre Street east of Murray Circle was identified as a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) High Crash Cluster from 2012- 2014. HSH is providing support to initiate safety improvements within this corridor and others across Massachusetts. Peter provided technical engineering guidance on the roadway design of the Centre and Walter intersection. This guidance included evaluation of a roundabout as well as a stop condition. Peter also performed pavement analysis and pavement design for this project.
Massport On-Call Massachusetts Port Authority – Boston, MA HSH is providing innovative, dynamic planning and engineering consulting services. The first project under this on-call was transportation planning for Commonwealth Flats in South Boston. Massport is concerned about pedestrian safety at the many crosswalks within Commonwealth Flats under current conditions and in the future. HSH inventoried and assessed each crosswalk location and made recommendations for changes to improve safety. The second project is for miscellaneous transportation and mobility planning services. This has included transportation analysis, area studies, transportation improvement plans, simulation and modeling, traffic counts, access studies, writing traffic impact studies, and interagency coordination and community outreach. Peter wrote and revised contract specifications and provided senior engineering review for all submissions throughout the D2-D3 Service Drive project.
On-Call Active Transportation Network Planning and Design Boston Transportation Department – Boston, MA HSH is leading the multidisciplinary team to advance the City of Boston’s goals to improve active transportation networks connectivity and safety, as outlined in Go Boston 2030 and Vision Zero. Projects range from collecting bicycle counts, safety evaluations, traffic analysis, queue observations, conceptual designs, preliminary designs, pavement markings and signage, construction plans, and curb ramp assessment. HSH planning and engineering staff are developing conceptual design plans for improving the pedestrian and cyclist environment at locations throughout Boston. HSH engineers are also developing plans for bicycle markings and signs and proposed changes to traffic signal phasing and timings to improve safety and reduce potential for vehicular conflicts with pedestrians and cyclists. Peter provided oversight and design support on all roadway engineering phases of the Tremont Street corridor. He also provided the senior engineering review for all phases of roadway engineering and for all submission packages. Specifically, Peter directed drainage and grading work for the corridor and oversaw the roadway design.
Pedestrian Safety along Tremont Street Boston Transportation Department – Boston, MA As part of an on-call contract, HSH prepared a Conceptual Design Report for the Boston Transportation Department (BTD) that addresses pedestrian safety along Tremont Street in the South End and Lower Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston. The project site was identified through Go Boston 2030 as a priority project to become a Neighborhood Complete Streets corridor. The goal of the project is to promote safe travel for all modes of transportation, with a focus on pedestrians and cyclists. The community sought to find options for maintaining existing on-street parking with these improvements in mind. HSH developed design concepts ranging in impact level. Curb use, safety and transit evaluations, and traffic operations analysis were conducted to determine design concepts for pedestrian safety projects along Tremont Street. Peter provided oversight and design support on all roadway engineering phases of the corridor. He also provided the senior engineering review for all phases of roadway engineering and for all submission packages. Specifically, Peter directed drainage and grading work for the corridor and oversaw the roadway design.
