Oakland Mills reception honoring Kassoff postponed

January 27, 2004

The Oakland Mills Community Association has postponed a reception that was scheduled today to honor Oakland Mills resident Hal Kassoff. The reception will be rescheduled.

State officials and community leaders plan to congratulate Kassoff, a former administrator of the State Highway Administration, for having the Statewide Operations Center recently renamed in his honor. Now known as the Hal Kassoff Statewide Operations Center, the facility was renamed in recognition of Kassoff's leadership, innovation, vision and 25 years of service to the highway administration.

The center allows state employees to monitor electronic cameras, message signs, weather stations and speed detectors and to control the timing of traffic signals on major state highways. In 1991, Kassoff arranged for $7 million in federal funding to construct the building, which is south of Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Kassoff is senior vice president for Parsons Brinckerhoff, an international engineering consulting firm. He and his wife, Lori, have lived in Oakland Mills for 32 years.
