Lesley Hoffarth, President and Executive Director, Forest Park Forever; former MODOT Project Director for I-64 Reconstruction
As project director for the new I-64, Hoffarth oversaw the total reconstruction of the $535 million design-build project. Under her leadership, the 10-mile urban freeway project in the heart of St. Louis was completed ahead of schedule and under budget, and it was selected as America's Transportation Awards Grant winner. In her new role as President and Executive Director of Forest Park Forever, Hoffarth leads the way in renewing and improving one of the region's most cherished parks.
