KLJ Hires Associate Planner in Saint Paul


SAINT PAUL, Minn.  – March 16, 2022 – KLJ Engineering is proud to welcome Ian Butler-Severson to its Saint Paul office. Butler-Severson will be working as an associate planner in our civil transportation department.


Butler-Severson began working towards his doctorate in urban planning in 2020, and previously earned a master’s degree in transportation planning from the University of New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana, and a bachelor’s degree in urban studies from Hamline University in Saint Paul. He possesses additional master’s degree level coursework in landscape architecture from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.


Since the 1930s, KLJ has worked alongside communities and clients of all sizes; partnering with cities, counties, and developers — just to name a few. At KLJ, we plan, design, and support infrastructure across the country such as roads, runways, pipelines, and parks. We create solutions that turn visions into reality and improve the lives of people and communities across the nation. We do this by focusing on a business model that puts the customer first, providing an exceptional experience that truly reimagines what projects can become. KLJ has office locations that span several states and cities, but that doesn’t mean we only work from those locations. We’re proud to say we work in various geographies and markets across the nation and with the right people, in the right place, at the right time, we’re helping communities move forward and grow. For more information about KLJ, visit
