Bradley Bobbitt (MURP '10) began a position with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) on August 27, 2012, as a transportation data analyst. WSDOT manages and operates Washington's state highway, freight and passenger rail, and ferries systems. WSDOT is considered a national leader among state DOTs in such areas as implementation of new traffic management technologies, ferry systems operation (Washington State Ferries is the largest ferry system in the country), and performance management.
Bobbitt works as a member of WSDOT's strategic assessment office (SAO), which is responsible for performance reporting on all WSDOT activities to the state legislature, governor's office, and the general public. In his role at the SAO, Bobbitt collaborates with staff from other offices within WSDOT to create quarterly and annual reports on topics ranging from project compliance with the Endangered Species Act to how effective new High Occupancy Toll lanes have been at reducing congestion on Interstate Highway 5. He also serves as the office's mapping and geographic information systems expert.
Since moving to Olympia, Washington, Bobbitt has seen jellyfish, harbor seals, the Hoh Rainforest, the Olympic Mountains, leaping salmon, sad Washingtonians writing poetry on rainy windows, Seattle's Pike Place Market, and the San Juan Islands.
