Former Port Authority Chief of Design brings more than two decades of project design and management expertise
NEW YORK CITY (Feb. 8, 2023) – Martha Bogle, PE, has rejoined HNTB Corporation as vice president and project director, bringing nearly 25 years of experience in transportation infrastructure project design and project management. Bogle, who is based in the New York office, has served as an executive leader in both the public and private sectors, most recently as Chief of Design for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
In that role, Bogle oversaw design of the Port Authority’s capital and operating projects to modernize, expand, maintain a state-of-good repair, improve customer experience and ensure operational excellence at the Port Authority’s five metropolitan airports, two tunnels and four bridges, the PATH rail system, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Ports facilities and the World Trade Center Complex. Bogle regularly partnered with the Authority’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to provide technical assistance and training opportunities to historically underutilized businesses.
“Martha is the epitome of what we value at HNTB…a recognized leader in our industry and a visionary strategic thinker with enduring dedication to client service and delivery,” said Kevin R. Collins, New York office leader. “I am thrilled that Martha has chosen to return to HNTB, and I know she will have an immediate impact delivering for our clients.”
During her original tenure at HNTB, Bogle served as deputy project manager for the firm’s general consulting engineering assignment for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, routinely engaging with the agency’s leadership, working on the agency’s strategic plan and prioritization of their long-range capital improvement plan. She was the structural services department manager for HNTB’s New Jersey office and project manager for HNTB’s rapid response for the Delaware River Turnpike Bridge Emergency Repairs, an extraordinarily complex project to repair a full-depth fracture in the deck-truss top chord for the major connector bridge between the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Turnpikes. Bogle led HNTB designers, partner firms and academia in investigating the cause of the fracture and coordinating destructive and non-destructive testing, design and implementation of repairs to safely return the bridge to service in only 48 days.
Bogle holds a Bachelor of Science degree in civil and environmental engineering from Lafayette College.
