“Problems” Are Challenges to Us
As planners, engineers, scientists, and surveyors, we are trained to deal with the complex, to blend our ingenuity with commitment and turn complexity into practical functionality. Maybe a multi-million dollar overpass isn’t the answer to a congested (and dangerous) intersection. Maybe a half-million dollar triple-left-turn-lane is, whether or not it has been tried in the region before. To get to the triple-left-turn-lane solution (and BGE did), we had to think unconventionally. We had to see a challenge, not a problem. We had to use our influence as leaders to advocate our position with key decision makers.
The processes for finding solutions to challenges are fluid at BGE. The solutions can be obvious or ingenious. What matters is that they work and stand the test of time.
