Zane A. Lloyd

Associate III


Zane Lloyd joined WJE in 2019 and has gained specialized experience through his involvement with the inspection and retrofit of various steel, concrete, and timber bridge structures. To support these efforts, he has performed nondestructive testing in both the laboratory and on in-service bridges. Mr. Lloyd has participated in bridge inspections involving many different bridge types across several states. Inspections also include the use of specialized rope access techniques when appropriate. His recent projects have included computer analyses and load ratings of simple and complex bridge structures. Mr. Lloyd has also participated in several field retrofit projects that required investigation, analysis, efficient retrofit design, retrofit fabrication, and installation of supplemental components for bridge structures.

Prior to joining WJE, Mr. Lloyd worked as a graduate research assistant specializing in the performance of concrete mixtures containing high volumes of alternative cementitious materials and the performance of innovative concrete curing methods.
