What I Do I spent several years working as a design/construction engineer. I would take the projects from our planning section and design them, then send them out to bid. Once they had been awarded to a contractor I would work in construction and oversee the building of the project, then close the project out. I have recently moved over to the planning section in my office now, where I am looking at pavement lifecycle analysis, safety analysis and other criteria to determine where our next projects should be. I then get them ready as far as I can for the design/construction engineers and hand them off to them.
