In our work over the past decades on the transportation aspects of development in Fairfax County, Virginia, our paths had crossed regularly with Alan Kessler at the Fairfax County Department of Transportation. My colleagues Robin Antonucci, Will Johnson, and I were grateful to attend a socially distanced retirement party for Alan on September 2.
Alan has worked for Fairfax County for just over 21 years and appears to be excited to start his retirement, splitting time between the mid-Atlantic region during the warmer months and more southern climes during the colder ones. Many of us at Wells+Associates have worked with Alan on numerous projects when he worked in the site analysis section. Perhaps most memorable was the opportunity to work closely with Alan on the Mosaic and Dunn Loring Metro projects.
We wish Alan well!
