  Bridges aren't just science, they’re art. Everything we do—from basic to long span—shows our commitment to the public and our passion for bridges.

Tony Hunley

Principal

Lexington, Kentucky

Tony is passionate about bridges. He’s worked with nearly every bridge type, at every phase—bridge type studies, preliminary and final design, construction engineering, construction administration, inspection, load rating, and rehab. His primary area of technical expertise is steel bridge design and rehabilitation.

Tony leads a structural engineering group of nearly 25 professionals, and his strengths lie in building and managing project teams, solving complex technical challenges, coordinating with clients and team members, and providing oversight on major bridge projects. He’s managed complex, multi-disciplinary projects, and he’s experienced in alternative project delivery. Tony also serves as a specialty sector lead in bridge design, part of the leadership team supporting our North American bridge practice.

In this role, Tony participates in technical organizations and industry committees, provides technical guidance on complex projects, coordinates resources on major projects, and leads or supports strategic bridge pursuits. Most recently, Tony has worked on several long span bridges (including work on 17 bridges over the Ohio River and its navigable tributaries). He also led an engineering team for the Coos Bay Rail Link project to get their rail bridges in operational shape and provided oversight to structural efforts on the Ohio River Bridges project.

After several years as a volunteer football coach, Tony now spends his free time hunting and fishing with his three sons who are also active in multiple clubs and sports teams.

WHAT I'M UP TO

THE CONFERENCE TRAIL
At the International Bridge Conference, I’ve presented twice on complex, long span bridge design projects.

I’ve presented at the World Steel Bridge Symposium twice. Once on my research into the redundancy of twin steel tub girder bridges, and the other time on the US 62/641 Tennessee River Bridge – a steel plate girder bridge with a 505-ft main span and an innovative horizontal bolted web splice in deep-haunched girder segments.

IN MY COMMUNITY
Since 2008, I’ve volunteered on various committees with the Kentucky Society of Professional Engineers. During that time, we developed the Kentucky Bridge Engineering Seminar Day which I’ve organized and moderated since 2012.

When students at Lexington Traditional Magnet School enter the Technology Student Association’s Structural Model Competition, I volunteer as a mentor to guide them through their submissions.

During National E-Week, I’ve promoted the industry in elementary and middle school class visits through the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
