Duluth, GA— Moreland Altobelli Associates, LLC, an Atlas Technical Consultants company, is pleased to announce that Todd I. Long, P.E. will join the team beginning June 13, 2018. Since 2015, Long has served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Fulton County which serves 1.1 million residents. As COO, he was responsible for the day‐to‐day operations of Fulton County’s public‐ facing departments and was ultimately responsible for improving operations in service to the county’s citizens.
“I am excited to join the Moreland Altobelli / Atlas team and continue to contribute to the development of improved transportation infrastructure in Georgia and across the country,” Long said.
While at Fulton County, he was instrumental in the passage of a 0.75% sales tax for transportation that generates nearly $570 million over five years for the cities of Fulton County outside of the City of Atlanta. He also played a key role in the development of Fulton County’s Master Transit Plan—currently being used in conjunction with recent transit tax legislation for consideration in a future transit referendum in Fulton County. Prior to joining Fulton County, Long retired from the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) as the Deputy Commissioner. Long was the first to serve as Georgia DOT’s Director of Planning – a position created by the Georgia General Assembly reporting directly to the Governor. In that role, Long served under two governors.
While at Georgia DOT, Long was also responsible for coordinating the efforts that led to the implementation of the Transportation Investment Act (TIA). TIA currently provides additional funding for 46 counties across the state using a 1.0% sales tax for transportation. Throughout his long and successful career in state and local government, Long has developed a wide and vast level of experience in creating and improving operational efficiencies and management services.
Long, a native of Hinesville, Georgia, is an active member of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and has served as president of the Georgia Section ITE. He currently serves as Vice President for the Southern District ITE. Long holds BSCE and MCE degrees in Civil Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
