National Engineers Week celebrates contributions

Ever think about where we’d be without engineers?

We know we certainly wouldn’t have most of the “stuff” that surrounds us in our everyday lives, or, if we did, it probably wouldn’t operate the way it does now.

That’s because engineers are the ones who design, create and make things work. They also play a really crucial role here at ADOT…

Seeing that it’s National Engineers Week (more on that in a minute), we thought we’d concentrate all week on the important work that our engineers accomplish every day to help the state’s transportation system function efficiently.

To kick things off, take a look back with us at these engineering-focused blog posts from the past:
