  • Licensed Professional Engineer in Arizona, Washington, Colorado, or Texas--or the ability to obtain license through reciprocity within 60 days.
  • 15 years of Project Management experience on construction of large-scale transportation projects with complex structures.
  • Must include 10 years of direct oversite of major bridge construction as the Professional Engineer in Responsible Charge including 5 years of segmental bridge construction.
  • Bridge Experience shall include both precast and cast-in-place structures with post tensioning and grouting.

  • Experience working with contractors to resolve issues dealing with contract conformance disagreements.
  • Extensive experience with traffic control plan reviews as well as inspection of major traffic realignments on major highway systems with lane closure restrictions.
  • Prior management or supervisory experience required
  • Excellent organization and time management skills
  • Completion of state DOT traffic inspection certification requirements, or equivalent certification from another state.
  • Must obtain any required certifications and pass appropriate qualifications tests for the position in specified time frames
  • Willingness to work weekend, nights, and swing shifts.
  • Valid Driver License
  • Must have good driving record
  • Ability to sit, stand, climb, bend, twist or stoop frequently and for prolonged periods
