Website by
Scott M. Kozel
Virginia, U.S.A.

This information is the result of 35 years of personal study of highway and transportation development. I worked for 10 years (1974-1984) in highway safety improvement design, highway construction inspection, and highway location & design; and in information technology since 1984. My highest education level is a masters degree in business. This site is privately developed, and has no association with PennDOT, SEPTA, VDOT, MDOT, WMATA, FHWA, or any other local, state, or federal transportation agency. I lived in the Philadelphia area for 5 years in the 1970s, so I know the area fairly well.
