Young Women in Engineering Program Kick-Off September 24, 2014
Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville Interchange Design at Routes B/VV Interchange Design at Farm Road 253 Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-September on a project to upgrade U.S. 60 to a freeway through Rogersville. The project will convert Route 60 to a freeway between Greene County Farm Road 241 west of Rogersville and Peck Hollow Road east of Rogersville.
Project Freeway Highlights Build an interchange at Route 60 and Farm Road 253 Build an interchange at Route 60 and Routes B/VV Build an overpass over Route 60 at Farm Road 247 Build two-way backage roads with one-way outer road Widen Farm Road 253 between Route 60 and Center Street Reconfigure intersection of Route VV and Redbud Street Improve the intersection of Route VV and Johnstown Drive Add turn lanes on Route 60 at Chicory Road and at Peck Hollow Road

Project Freeway Timeline Fall 2013 -- The district prepares request for qualifications and request for proposal documents. December 2, 2013 -- An informational meeting for potential design-build teams interested in the project held. January through April 2014 -- Evaluation process for design-build teams and their proposals. June 2014 -- Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awards contract. August 2014 -- A design public meeting will be scheduled. September 2014 -- Construction begins on the project. December 2016 -- Project is completed.
Project Freeway Goals 1.Deliver the project within the programmed budget of $35 million. 2.Convert U.S. 60 into a freeway between County Road 241 on the west and near Chicory Road on the east, providing two points of controlled access to U.S. 60 in the vicinity of Greene County Farm Road 253 and Webster County Route B/VV. 3.Engage stakeholders and the community to develop and deliver the project while minimizing impacts. 4.Impress our customers through innovative traffic control solutions that conveniently, efficiently and safely move drivers through the project during and after construction. 5.Create a new model for purchasing right-of-way on a design-build project. 6.Complete the project by December 2016.

is the application of science to the needs of humanity. This is accomplished through the application of knowledge, mathematics and practical experience to the design of useful objects or processes. "To create things, to actually see them being built... it's very rewarding to see the results of what you saw on paper. It gives you a lot of personal satisfaction,“ Andrew Herrmann, former president of the American Society of Civil Engineers “ Engineering You can be creative in anything - in math, science, engineering, philosophy - as much as you can in music or in painting or in dance. Ken Robinson, Author There's nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind. Bill Nye the Science Guy Engineering stimulates the mind. Bruce Dickinson, VP Boeing Engineering is a fantastic base for any career. Chris Liddell, CFO GM
Engineering Disciplines Civil engineering focuses on how to make structures sound under pressure Chemical engineering is focused on the manufacturing industry and in environmental engineering issues Electrical engineering focuses on anything with an electrical current from a city power grid to a microprocessor Petroleum engineering focuses on determining where oil is located and the best method of extraction. Mechanical engineering is involved with almost any nonliving item that has moving parts Aerospace engineering is the study of how objects move through space.
Civil Engineering Civil engineering is a profession that offers plenty of visual payoff. Take a look around, and you'll see the work of civil engineers everywhere – from buildings and bridges to roads and reservoirs. Who Employs Civil Engineers? Governments Federal State Local Private Sector Consulting Firm Construction Firm Civil Engineering Professionals design and oversee the construction and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure such as highways, tunnels, rail systems, airports and water supply and sewage systems. The job includes: Analyzing, especially in planning stage Studying survey reports and maps Breaking down construction costs Considering government regulations Evaluating potential environmental hazards Testing soils and building materials Providing cost estimates for equipment and labor Using software to plan and design systems and structures Career Path Options: Structural/Architectural Development Environmental Hydraulics Water resources Transportation Traffic Geotechnical engineering Construction
