Eric Beightel

Principal Infrastructure Policy/Environmental Strategist

Eric has over 20 years of experience in the environmental and transportation fields. He is a nationally recognized expert bringing an unmatched understanding of the environmental laws, regulations, policies and procedures that govern the transportation project development process.

His mastery of the National Environmental Policy Act and complex multijurisdictional problem solving, including working with a broad and diverse range of stakeholders, have yielded some of the last decade’s fundamental federal environmental regulations and policy. He helped lead the development and implementation of the efforts to modernize and improve the federal environmental review process and provided integral technical assistance for the passage of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act.

“There are monumental shifts coming in infrastructure policy and, notably, the ways in which we consider the environmental and social effects of our infrastructure investment. With new investment brings new opportunities to rethink how we move people and goods in a more sustainable way, providing connections to communities and opportunities.”
