Snehal Shah has joined STV as Vice President and Engineering Chief within the Transportation Northeast Group.

He will not only help drive project delivery but also contribute to the expansion of the Northeast region’s transportation practice, according to New York City-based STV, an infrastructure-focused professional services firm providing engineering, architectural, planning, environmental, program management, and construction management services for transportation systems, buildings, water, energy, and other facilities.

Shah served most recently as Deputy Chief Engineer for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), orchestrating the daily activities of six concurrent multi-billion-dollar “super mega” projects, STV reported Feb. 5. These included the Hunts Point Access improvements and Van Wyck Expressway projects, in which he helped optimize construction sequencing to ensure minimal disruption to the critical access routes to John F. Kennedy International Airport and the Hunts Point Food Distribution Market.

Shah is a graduate of the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda in Gujarat, India, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a Master’s of Science in Civil Engineering. He has published reports on the study of flexible pavement design variables for urban and rural roads, as well as the design of prestressed concrete ties for railroads.

“Leveraging more than 30 years of expertise gained at the NYSDOT, particularly in coordinating multi-stakeholder construction projects in the New York region, Snehal brings invaluable insights to our ongoing and future portfolio of projects,” said Peter Pappas, Vice President and New York Metro Area Manager at STV. “This role isn’t just about technical prowess; it’s about translating complexities into solutions that propel us forward.”

“Snehal upholds a strong commitment to major project delivery, demonstrating expertise in navigating projects to successful completion while managing the simultaneous demands associated with planning, environmental impacts, as well as engineering and construction functions,” said Richard Amodei, President of Transportation Northeast at STV.
