HOUSTON, TX — CivilTech, a Woolpert Company, welcomes Julio Salinas as a Construction Project Manager. Salinas is a civil engineer with nearly 20 years of experience in construction engineering and inspection who has managed multimillion-dollar transportation projects throughout Texas, with a focus on Houston. He will manage projects that support the Texas Department of Transportation and the state’s transportation infrastructure needs.

Salinas is a University of Houston graduate who started his career at TxDOT in 2004. While there, he worked for more than a decade as a Transportation Engineer, managing high-volume projects like the U.S. 290/Interstate Highway 610 interchange reconstruction and was honored as a Young Engineer of the Year by the Houston Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Salinas also held management positions at private engineering companies, where he gained additional CEI, hydraulics, and infrastructure experience.

“Woolpert has been a successful engineering company for more than 100 years because it continually strengthens its foundation while integrating the latest design and geospatial technologies," Salinas said. "Woolpert joined forces with CivilTech to add depth and dimension to its support of Texas and TxDOT. That clear and capable approach makes my job much easier.”

CivilTech Construction Services Director Michelle Milliard said, in addition to his experience in managing mainstream and niche transportation projects, Salinas understands how TxDOT operates and can apply Texas transportation best practices to successfully work within that system.

“Julio knows the transition points, the procedures, and the process,” Milliard said. “He is highly proficient as a safety director, and he identifies and solves problems before they even become an issue. We are excited to have him with us and excited to see the vast benefits he will deliver to TxDOT and the Houston area.”
