Barbara Frost Inducted into the Civil and Environmental Academy of Distinguished Alumni of the University of Missouri, Columbia
Barbara Frost of the TranSystems St. Louis office has been inducted into the Civil and Environmental Academy of Distinguished Alumni of the University of Missouri, Columbia.
After earning a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Mizzou in 1995, Barb Frost started her career with Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) working in the Jefferson City (HQ) and St. Louis offices. At the St. Louis Regional Chamber, she provided the foundation for the private sector infrastructure (surface transportation) advocacy before becoming a consultant in the private sector.
She currently is an assistant vice president and senior professional partner at TranSystems, where she serves as a lead within TranSystems’ National Environmental Planning Practice Community. She is a licensed professional engineer in the states of Missouri
and Nebraska; however, her areas of proficiency are predominantly environmental clearance and transportation planning for highway, railroad, transit and port projects. Barb’s extensive National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) expertise, in particular, is highly regarded.
Her value as a technical expert in her field has been proven by a track record of expedited federal approvals and her service to state and federal agencies as a trusted extension of their own staff. Working in both the public and private sectors, she has been involved in many significant projects during their preliminary stages and has been instrumental in planning for responsible use of public funds for transportation projects. Notable projects include environmental clearance efforts for three of the oldest Mississippi River crossings in St. Louis, the Eads, Merchants, and MacArthur Bridges, and high speed rail programs in Illinois, Missouri, and California, as well as freight and port related planning in the bi-state (MO & IL) region.
