Fehr & Peers Expands to Long Beach

Fehr & Peers opened its first Southern California office in 2005. Since then, we have seen our Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego offices thrive. We have had the opportunity to work with numerous communities in the South Bay and Southeast Los Angeles County, including the ports through our growing freight practice. As such, we are thrilled to announce the opening of our Long Beach Office! Our new office will allow us to continue to grow, better serving our existing and new clients, and giving our staff the opportunity to call Long Beach home. Above all, we look forward to continually serving and improving Southern California communities through innovative transportation solutions.
