Luka Ukrainczyk Jamal Mahmoud
Luka Ukrainczyk is a transportation engineer in the Speed and Reliability group at King County Metro. He focuses on transit signal priority project planning, design, and implementation as well other treatments to improve bus performance. He received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from UC Davis and a master’s degree in transportation engineering from UW. During his graduate studies, he researched freight transportation, was president of the student chapter of ITE, and interned at WSDOT Toll Division. Subsequently, Luka worked at DKS Associates before entering his current role at Metro.

I am honored to be nominated for Secretary in the Washington chapter of ITE. ITE was a formative part of my education and professional life. I greatly enjoyed organizing and participating in activities such as Traffic Bowl and the Student Leadership conferences. My vision for ITE includes furthering engagement with the student chapters in Washington and organizing informal events like happy hours and networking lunches. I would like to focus on mentoring young professionals for leadership in ITE. We need to make efforts to avoid the loss of ITE talent that occurs when students members graduate. I hope to have the opportunity to work to further ITE’s mission and help the chapter expand.

I am a traffic engineer with a broad range of experience in traffic engineering and transportation facility design. My current focus is in traffic signal operation, traffic calming, traffic studies, and asset management that support livable and sustainable communities emphasizing walking, bicycling, and transit.

I’m fully committed to meaningfully involving the public and project stakeholders throughout the planning and design process. My project experience includes corridor and traffic studies, bicycle and pedestrian planning, design, and public engagement.

I am passionate about our ITE members who volunteer for the success of our profession. They are the backbone of the ITE Community and ensure the sustainability, visibility, strength, and growth of our organization.
With my strong focus on volunteerism, backed by my 20+ years of active ITE membership, together we will Move ITE Forward as a leader in the global transportation community. I have the desire to see ITE grow and succeed. Simply, I have much to contribute.
