ABOUT IAN LOCKWOOD, P.E. (FULL BIOGRAPHY)
Ian Lockwood P.E., is a Livable Transportation Engineer with the Toole Design Group. Ian has Bachelor and Master Degrees in Civil Engineering and is a Harvard University Loeb Fellow. In the 1990s, Ian was the City Transportation Planner for West Palm Beach where he led some of the first road diets and arterial calming projects in the country. In 1997, he was awarded the Institute of Transportation Engineers’ (ITE’s) Past Presidents’ Award for his project that preserved Virginia Route 50 as a 2-lane rural road instead of the converting it into major freeway. In 2005, Ian helped define the term “complete streets,” an idea about inclusive design which has spread across North America. In 2009, his project, to replace the major highway project along the New Jersey Route 31 corridor with a Smart Growth Project, won ITE’s Project of the Year. Ian is a proponent of the “Path-as-Place” doctrine which informs all of his work, ranging from designing flexible-use public spaces, to the design of Main Streets, to downtown revitalization initiatives, to highway removal projects, all with the goal of increasing social, environmental, and economic health in cities. Ian is well published, guest lectures at several universities, and is occasionally interviewed on National Public Radio. For fun, he does photography, cartooning, and road cycling.
