Isaac to join growing Northeast Engineering team to oversee new rail/transit projects.
Dallas – November 11, 2022 – Irving-based RailPros announced today that it has hired Lenora Isaac as Director of Rail and Transit Projects, based out of our Newark, NJ office. Isaac will oversee development and implementation of new rail/transit projects in the New York/New Jersey/Pennsylvania metropolitan region.
“RailPros is thrilled to welcome Lenora to our team,” said Tom Crowell, Senior Vice President of Engineering for RailPros. “I and other members of RailPros have a long history working alongside of Lenora. She is extremely knowledgeable and highly motivated along with knowing the ins-and-outs of the transit industry in the Northeast. Lenora has had an extremely successful career at NJ TRANSIT, and she will add another layer of experienced expertise to the full suite of services that we provide to our rail and rail transit clients.”
Isaac recently retired from NJ TRANSIT after a 35-year career there, which included roles in Fleet and Support Equipment, Capital Planning and Programs, Rail System Development, and most recently in their Resilience Program. She brings specific expertise with Northeast Corridor projects, having successfully managed and delivered major rehabilitation and reconstruction projects at Metropark Station, Rahway Station, the Trenton Transit Center, and Newark Penn Station. As the Sr. Director of NJ TRANSIT’s Resilience Program, Isaac was responsible for the delivery of a program of projects worth over $3 Billion including the Raritan River Bridge Replacement, the Long Slip Fill and Rail Enhancement project, the Delco Lead S&I Facility, new substations and multiple other infrastructure and facility projects.
