Biologist Elizabeth Grietzer Joins Skelly and Loy

As a Biologist in our Environmental Services Group, Elizabeth Grietzer assists with NEPA projects, particularly those covered under PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration’s Bridge and Roadway Programmatic Agreement (BRPA) that addresses NEPA approval for a majority of the bridge, roadway, and non-complex projects that PennDOT undertakes. She also assists with Categorical Exclusions research and approval, as well as things associated with them such as Aids to Navigation (ATON) plans to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC), and Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) reports that provide site information necessary to perform an Environmental Review for special concern species and resources listed under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, the Wild Resource Conservation Act, the PFBC, or the Pennsylvania Game and Wildlife Code. Ms. Griezter is currently working on the Route 22 Widening Project and PennDOT District 8-0’s Super Group Bridge projects.

Ms. Grietzer gained threatened and endangered species experience with her thesis work centered on Allegheny Woodrats. She has completed research on other non-threatened species, including the wood turtle and red backed salamander.

Ms. Grietzer earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with Specialization in Zoology from Delaware Valley College, and a Master of Science degree in Biology with Specialization in Ecology and Evolution from Montclair State University.
