Stephanie served as the roadway design engineer for the M Street SE Underpass Project which created eliminated the at-grade crossing of the BNSF Stampede Pass Line at M Street SE by lowering the roadway to create an underpass. The project constructed two railroad bridges, roadway widening to accommodate up to five travel lanes, sidewalk, bicycle lanes, lighting, traffic signal, stormwater pump station and pond, and relocated utilities to accommodate the new roadway grades. This undercrossing improved safety and freight mobility. The creative roadway geometric design reduced impacts to properties while meeting ADA accessibility requirements.

She also performed interdisciplinary coordination, quantity take-offs, estimating, and specification editing.
