Ali joins TYLI following a successful 34-year career with the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) District Six, which covers Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties in South Florida.

Ali was responsible for overseeing and managing a staff of highly skilled professional engineers acting as project managers for FDOT and consultant firms delivering over 1,200 transportation projects totaling over $10 billion.
He managed complex projects within District Six from inception to design and construction such as the SR 826/836 interchange, the I-395 mid-town interchange, the addition of managed lanes to I-95, the Golden Glade interchange improvement project, and the Okeechobee Boulevard reconstruction from Palmetto to Le Jejune Road, which included an open tunnel. Ali directly managed the Palmetto Expressway improvement program, which included 12 separate reconstruction projects, over 50 miles of limited-access facility, over 100 new bridges, major arterial reconstruction within the corridor, and 21 major interchange replacements.
“Ali brings to TYLI a wealth of experience overseeing some of South Florida’s most significant transportation projects,” said James Moreno, P.E., TYLI Senior Vice President and South Region Director. “We are pleased to have Ali as part of our South Region team, not only for his engineering expertise but also for the strong relationships he has formed with South Florida city and county governments, permitting agencies, and other industry professionals.”
