VHB is pleased to welcome Adeel Mysorewala as Director of Transit and Rail (T&R) Engineering for the company’s Metro DC offices. In this role, Adeel will lead delivery of all T&R engineering services for Metro DC and will guide VHB’s technical teams on key assignments. The addition of Adeel comes less than two months after Meghan Powell was hired as Director of Transit & Rail for the Mid-Atlantic region. As VHB’s T&R practice continues to expand across the region, Adeel’s role will focus on T&R in the Washington, DC Metro area to deliver integrated services, technical excellence, and consistent quality deliverables on projects to keep them on track toward construction.
As former Project Manager of Design and Construction for Virginia Railway Express (VRE), Adeel brings almost two decades of experience in a multitude of specialties, including rail, pedestrian, and vehicular bridges as well as platform stations and yards. He served as project manager on various VRE projects, including the Broad Run Expansion, Alexandria Station Improvements, Lorton Station Expansion, and L’Enfant Station Improvements. He has long-standing relationships with many transit and rail partners that serve the East Coast, including District Department of Transportation, CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern Railway, Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transit, Virginia Passenger Rail Authority, and Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.
“Adeel’s experience in both the public and private sectors equipped him with technical skills and project experience that is a great fit for our Metro DC T&R team,” said Joe Wanat, Managing Director of VHB’s Metro DC office. “T&R projects in urban environments are complex with many layers. Having Adeel on board to manage these, provide knowledge of local governments and state agencies, and experience in construction management and permitting will benefit all stakeholders involved.”
Adeel earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Structures from the University of Arizona and is currently pursuing a master’s in engineering management. He achieved LEED Green Associate (GA) certification and is part of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA).
