During his career with Thomas & Hutton, Ryan has been deeply involved in the planning and design of numerous spaces in communities across the southeast. Recent major projects Ryan has been involved with include the Highway 278 CID Master Plan in Covington, Georgia which resulted in a long-term vision for the community that will transform the Highway 278 corridor from an auto-oriented suburban highway to a multi-modal highway. The redesigned corridor will now focus on providing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, with planted medians and street trees. Ryan also recently completed the design of two new city squares and associated streetscapes within Eastern Wharf in the City of Savannah.
