Engineers Week celebrates engineering contributions

ADOT Engineers examine US 89 after landslide

Engineers are crucial on projects like the US 89 landslide repair.

Saying that engineers are an important part of ADOT is really kind of an understatement.

That’s because they’re absolutely essential to ADOT’s operations. Think about it – civil engineers design and build Arizona’s highways and bridges. Geotechnical engineers are crucial on projects like the US 89 landslide repair. Then we’ve got electrical and computer engineers who work on the systems that allow ADOT to monitor traffic conditions and keep drivers updated. Actually, there are all types of engineers who play vital roles here at ADOT.

So, when Engineers Week rolls around each year, it’s definitely an occasion we like to mark…

Not sure what Engineers Week is? It’s happening now (Feb. 22-28) and according to the official Engineers Week site, the week is meant to celebrate how engineers make a difference in the world. It’s also about increasing public dialogue about the need for engineers and bringing engineering to life for kids, educators and parents.

Since engineers play such a critical role here at ADOT, we thought we’d take this opportunity to look back at some of our favorite engineering-focused blog posts.
