Dudek worked with SANDAG to create a methodology that local jurisdiction planners and project managers can use to identify what climate adaptations and environmental justice strategies should be implemented and why. This methodology provides a deliberate process for understanding local vulnerabilities and values, as well as evaluating adaptation strategies based on equity, economic, environmental, and
In collaboration with SANDAG, Dudek helped develop a Public Works Plan (PWP)/Transportation and Resource Enhancement Program (TREP) for the North Coast Corridor (NCC) in San Diego. The plan, approved in 2014, aims to improve transportation and coastal resources through a $6-billion 40-year program. Dudek’s role included preparing Notices of Impending Development and Coastal Development Permits
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (LA Metro) Foothill Gold Line will be a 9.1-mile, four-station light rail line spanning Glendora to Pomona, one of the most heavily used transit corridors in Eastern Los Angeles County. Dudek is working with the construction contractor to facilitate the protection of environmental resources including sensitive wildlife and

Dudek led a two-year wildlife connectivity study along State Route 62 that connects the area between the San Gorgonio Wilderness and Big Morongo Canyon Preserve. In advance of future modifications to the highway system, Caltrans was interested in the current use by large mammals (primarily desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, coyote,
To address the risk to transportation infrastructure caused by sea-level rise, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) sought to assess sea-level rise risks throughout the San Diego County region and plan for climate change adaptation. Dudek evaluated the region’s vulnerability using models and crafted a robust, visually engaging document to guide future sea-level rise
Caltrain’s Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project (PCEP) consists of electrifying a 51-mile stretch of existing track from San Francisco to San Jose by installing an overhead contact system (OCS) and associated power supply infrastructure. The goal is to improve Caltrain system performance and curtail long-term environmental impacts by reducing noise, improving air quality and lowering greenhouse
San Francisco International Airport is the largest airport in Northern California and the second busiest in state, with more than 53 million passengers arriving or departing from the airport’s four terminals in 2016.
The Mid-Coast Trolley will extend the existing Blue Line Trolley service––which currently terminates in Downtown San Diego––north to the University City community. The line will serve major activity and employment centers, improving access to growing employment, education, and residential areas.
High-Speed Rail (HSR) is California’s first high-speed transportation project. It will eventually include 24 stations and will run from Sacramento, through the Central Valley, to San Diego at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.
