Written by 

HNTB added Michael Barbour to its growing Southern California team as senior project director and associate vice president.

HNTB says Barbour will focus on the California High-Speed Rail Construction Package 4 project, where he oversees project and construction management of technical and management staff.

Barbour has more than three decades of experience in rail and highway design and construction management working with local agencies, contractors, military and consultants. His transit design-build experience includes the California State Route 125 Design Build Gap Connector project in San Diego and Honolulu Authority Rapid Transit's elevated airport guideway and stations, among others. During his 18-year tenure with Caltrans, he served as acting deputy for design in District 7 in Los Angeles and office chief for structure design in Sacramento.

"Michael is a highly respected rail and highway transportation professional with a broad range of construction management expertise on high-profile infrastructure projects," said Andres Ocon, Southern California office leader and vice president for HNTB. "His design-build background, along with his professional insight and leadership, will be an asset as we continue to provide design and construction oversight for California's high-speed rail project in the Central Valley."
