Next Stop: Salt Lake City!
February 12 | 2018

In 2003, The Langdon Group (TLG) expanded to the Beehive State and settled in the J-U-B Salt Lake City office. Originally comprised of one project manager with part-time help, the team has grown and five of our 13-member team are now based in this office. The Salt Lake team covers projects throughout the state of Utah from the historic streets of Park City, to the hustle and bustle of downtown Salt Lake, and even to the desert of Vernal, UT where Dinosaurs once roamed.

Senior Project Manager Siobhan Locke manages the SLC TLG team, which includes Project Managers, Brianne Bigelow and Dianne Olson, Project Associate Jennifer Fowler, and Project Coordinator Andee Devore. This group enjoys the opportunities to work closely and collaboratively on projects, where each individual’s unique skill set are leveraged to deliver the results our clients are looking for.

The SLC TLG team enjoys working for a wide variety of clients on a range of projects. Some of those more recent projects include:

  • Salt Lake City Public Utilities – Over the last few years, TLG’s Salt Lake office has been fortunate enough to have built a great client relationship with Salt Lake City, most notably with the Department of Public Utilities. This has included everything from designing outreach strategies for smaller construction projects to developing comprehensive communications processes for major wastewater infrastructure projects. This client relationship has also given TLG the unique opportunity to become rather well acquainted with the Water Reclamation Facility where they have seen, first-hand, what is flushed down the toilet . . .
  • Utah Department of Transportation – The SLC office manages numerous UDOT projects at various stages of development (planning, environmental, design, and construction). Currently this includes the I-215; SR-201 to 2200 North Rehabilitation project, the I-15 Southbound Expansion project, the Express Lanes Violation Reduction project, and the I-215 Environmental Assessment. If you ever come across a TLG team member on a project site, you will likely see them donning a hard hat and an orange vest!
  • Utah Transit Authority – TLG has worked extensively with UTA on critical public and internal communication projects, including an assessment on Distance Based Fares, a new Community Relations Plan, and internal organizational leadership training. We are also helping manage the public communication of the Provo-Orem TRIP project in Utah County, which is an extensive transportation improvement project that will bring the first bus rapid transit line to the Provo-Orem area.
  • Mountainland Association of Governments – TLG is conducting the public involvement for the 2019 update of MAG’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This project includes facilitating the process of engaging City and County representatives throughout Utah County, creating a public and stakeholder input process to identify transportation priorities for the long-range plan and updating MAG’s Public Involvement Policy with communication and public engagement best management practices. TLG’s engagement with stakeholders in the region involves educating stakeholders on the RTP planning process through messaging complex model outputs in a way that is relevant to a variety of audiences to better inform policy decisions in the future. Internally, we often describe this process as “translating” where we take technical information from engineers that feels foreign to the public and reframe it so it can be easily understood.
