Mike Alston

Mike grew up in North Carolina and earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University before defecting to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he has lived and worked since 2010. He received master’s degrees in transportation engineering and in city & regional planning from UC Berkeley and joined Kittelson in 2017.

As a plangineer, Mike is excited about diving into technical details in service of planning outcomes and better, more socially equitable communities. He has done so on a variety of project types, including safety projects throughout Northern California, urban and rural transportation impact analyses, and preliminary engineering projects. Mike worked on a road diet feasibility and assessment process for the City of Oakland, including implementing Highway Capacity Manual methods to create custom service volume tables. He enjoys working with large datasets and specializes in GIS mapping and analysis, safety analysis and prioritization, and operations analysis.

When not watching the sun set over Mt. Tamalpais from his office, Mike can be found riding his bike for exercise, for transportation, or to go camping.
