Mike Bittner, PE, PMP, PTOE

Principal Transportation Engineer

A principal transportation engineer for Bolton & Menk, Mike is a rare hybrid transportation professional who can carry a project from the earliest phases of planning to the most technical phases of construction. He focuses on identifying emerging trends and staying nimble enough to capitalize on these trends. Beginning his career in 2010, his exemplary work, leadership, creativity, and communication skills have been commended regionally and nationally. He has received many awards, presented at a dozen national conferences, and authored three papers on innovative traffic control.

A proud lifelong North Dakota resident, Mike has managed more transportation planning studies than any other North Dakota consultant over the past decade, including the largest roadway project in North Dakota history (US Highway 85 through western North Dakota), transformative regional master plans, and metropolitan-wide transportation plans. He has managed nearly 100 projects across several dozen communities throughout his career.
