The impacts of transportation funding are felt across the state.
“Transportation infrastructure and sustainability have been prioritized by the NCGA in recent years. The engineering community brought their expertise in partnering with the NCDOT to staff up and deliver on these priority projects. In recent weeks, our community has been rocked by the suspension of over 900 projects resulting in unexpected layoffs of 500 professionals across the industry, with that number expected to double in the near future. The Professional Engineers of NC (PENC) is working with the NC Chamber and other valued partners to develop recommendations for safeguards to support engineers and the economic and workforce sustainability of our state.”
