Jane Clare Lundquist, P.E., M.ASCE, Transportation Engineer at the Texas Department of Transportation, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in transportation engineering.
Having excelled as a professional engineer since 2005, despite early discouraging sentiments from schoolteachers, Ms. Lundquist is backed by a Bachelor of Arts in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Austin from 1996. For five years, she gained experience as a graduate engineer in the private sector in Precast Concrete before serving as a transportation engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation for two decades. During this time, she designed architectural precast cladding for a seven-building office park in Austin and The Woodlands, managed numerous projects, conducted transportation-related research, and much more. As a professional transportation engineer, Ms. Lundquist was selected as a Federal Highway Administration Motorcyclist Advisory Council Member, in which she worked on safety solutions, inclusion in V2X design, and greater recognition of motorcycles in roadway and work zones in FHWA and AASHTO design manuals.
Today, Ms. Lundquist maintains professional affiliation with the American Society of Civil Engineers, National Society of Professional Engineers, Society of American Value Engineers International, American Motorcyclist Association and Harley Owners Group. Notably, she was the recipient of a Gordon Frank Outstanding Accomplishment in Government Award, as well as Commendations from Texas Department of Transportation for subject matter expertise in consultant selection. She attributes her success to passion, dedication and drive. As a private citizen, through the support of school and neighborhood citizen groups, Ms. Lundquist obtained safety illumination on a segment of highway near her community where several young people had died. She had STOP signs installed at significant intersections in her community to provide safer pedestrian access to apartments, emergency access, shopping, and schools. She also had bike lanes installed on community streets, held bike safety clinics at schools and donated bicycles she refurbished to local schools for disadvantaged children. Looking toward the future, Ms. Lundquist hopes to focus on improving the TxDOT Statewide Value Engineering Program by training younger people to understand the methodology and have a broader group of people who know how to plan and perform the tasks.
