Following his first stint at WSP, Axt then worked at AECOM from 2003 to this past July as deputy project manager on the Southwest Corridor LRT project in Minneapolis-St. Paul and as financial and administration manager on the Viva BRT project in Toronto. He also served as deputy project manager on the Dulles Corridor Rapid Transit Project’s Preliminary Engineering/National Environmental Policy Act project for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Northern Virginia.
He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, and a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
