Dick Adams, PE, PTOE
Dick Adams earned his BS from Texas Tech University and MS from the University of Washington. In the 1990’s he worked for WSDOT signal operations in Seattle before heading a comprehensive ITS conversion throughout the 2000’s as the Traffic Engineer for the City of Lynnwood. He has experience both as a consultant and service provider, most notable as the ITS Maintenance Manager for VDOT’s program for four years.
