In this episode, I talk to Dennis D. Truax, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE, D.WRE, F.NSPE, F.ASCE, the 2022 President of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the professor emeritus of the Richard A. Rula School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Mississippi State University about the new Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), and how it will affect civil engineering companies in the short and long term.
Here Are Some of the Questions I Ask Dennis:
- What does the new legislation, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, entail?
- How soon will funding be available for this legislation?
- Are civil engineering schools addressing new technologies in their curricula?
- Should companies that are interested in the projects keep in contact with their DOT?
