In 1944, H.W. Lochner, Inc. was founded by Harry Lochner, Sr. Harry worked on the development of some of the country’s first urban area freeway plans, along with plans for freeway corridors between cities. These plans were a forerunner to what is now the Interstate Highway System.

One of the first comprehensive highway design software systems, HDPS, was developed by Lochner. HDPS was endorsed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and many state Departments of Transportation (DOT). The firm established Techplot as a subsidiary to market the system to other firms.

Major project wins continued, including the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven, Connecticut, and the Mid- Currituck project in North Carolina, Lochner’s first P3 project.

Recently, Lochner merged with BWR to become a firm of 520 employees in 30 offices in 19 states.
