Mission Statement:

The mission of the American Society of Highway Engineers is to provide a forum for members and partners of the highway industry to promote a safe, efficient and sustainable highway system through education, innovation and fellowship.

With the numerous organizations bidding for your time and resources, this is what ASHE can offer you.

Networking with other transportation professionals through monthly Section meetings and other social events.

Opportunities for continuing education and professional development through participation in Section meetins, Regional seminars and the annual National Conference. ASHE is an ICET accredit organization so technical presentations made at ASHE functions and administered in accordance with ICET procedures earn continuing education units (CEUs) that are recognized worldwide. Some presentation topics include:

  • Special or unique projects in our area
  • Discussions about federal, state and local transportation programs and funding
  • Innovations in roadway/bridge design, construction and/or materials
  • Construction and contract law
  • Procurement procedures and DBE requirements
  • Pavement and geometric design issues
  • Drainage, erosion control and other environmental concerns
  • Transportation planning & traffic operations
  • Pedestrian and cyclist accommodations

Community Service through local Section activities such as Adopt-A-Highway, Habitat for Humanity house projects and other charity events.

Promotion of the highway industry through active advertisement and legislative lobbying.

Membership at the Member level no matter what your position is. ASHE recognizes that everyone plays an important role in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of a successful transportation system and we welcome everyone involved in the industry to be a member.
