John Habermann joined the TTI Research and Implementation Division as the Lead Mobility Coordinator on the I-35 Mobility Coordination Project. John moved to the Waco area to start an I-35 project office for TTI. In his role as mobility coordinator, John has worked to advance traffic and work zone safety initiatives such as automated, portable, smart traffic, monitoring systems, variable speed limits in work zones, dynamic speed display signs, comparative travel time signs, and the dynamic late lane merge. John regularly engages a breadth of stakeholders, along the I-35 corridor, to keep elected officials, travelers, business owners, and property owners current on construction activities and the potential impacts those activities could have on day-to-day operations.
Over the last 20 years, John has established interests and experiences in work zone ITS, work zone safety, low cost safety improvements on local roads, roadway safety, roadside safety, roadway and highway construction, technology transfer, workshop and course development, the manual on uniform traffic control devices, and transportation policy. Additionally, John would be open to further developing his skill sets in assisting villages, in third world countries, grow their micro economies and public works infrastructure.
As program manager of the Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program, John implemented a local research program that advanced the areas of bridge inspection, traffic signal technology, and improved Portland cement concrete mix designs. John successfully secured an award from the Indiana Department of Transportation to assist with the Indiana Highway Safety Improvement Program. John routinely spoke before city, county, and state elected officials regarding the State of local roads and the funding of local roads in Indiana. John was appointed to the Indiana State MUTCD Committee and the Indiana Highway Strategic Plan Committee to contribute to the content, editing, and distribution of these documents.
