Tri-County Welcomes Jim Koenig as New Senior Transportation Planning Manager
Lansing, Mich. – The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is pleased to introduce their newest addition to the team, Jim Koenig, as the agency’s senior transportation planning manager. Koenig joined Tri-County in February and will be responsible for the implementation and management of the agency’s transportation management systems related to pavement condition, safety, and traffic congestion, as well as ensuring the realization of investment priorities outlined in the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and implemented through projects in the Transportation Improvement Program.
Originally from Michigan, Koenig was previously employed as a senior land use planner with the City of Sarasota, Florida. He brings with him more than 14 years of experience in transportation and land use planning in both the private and public sectors, including with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). Koenig is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners and holds a Bachelor of Science in Geography from Eastern Michigan University and a Master of City & Regional Planning from The Ohio State University. Eager to be closer to extended family, Koenig and his family have returned to the Lansing area to continue his career in transportation.
“I’m excited to be back in mid-Michigan and working as a transportation planning professional for Tri-County,” said Koenig. “My goal is to work productively with the many agencies striving to make Greater Lansing’s transportation infrastructure some of the best in the state.”
“We are thrilled to have a transportation planning manager with such extensive experience as part of our team,” said Executive Director Jim Snell. “Jim’s expertise, along with his understanding of our role in the region from his time with MDOT, will be a major asset for our agency as we continue to plan for the sustainable improvement of our transportation system.”
