LOCAL HIGHWAY ENGINEERING MANPOWER: APPRAISAL AND ACTION

A MANPOWER ENGINEERING SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN CALIFORNIA TO DETERMINE: (1) WHAT IS THE TECHNICAL WORKING FORCE AND HOW IT WOULD HAVE TO BE INCREASED TO HANDLE ADDITIONAL WORK, (2) WHAT ARE THE POSSIBILITIES FOR INCREASING THE ENGINEERING OUTPUT FROM EXISTING TECHNICAL PERSONNEL, AND (3) WHAT ARE THE OBSTACLES TO GETTING PERSONNEL AND HOW MAY THEY BE OVERCOME. PRELIMINARY FINDINGS FROM THE ANALYSIS ARE SUMMARIZED IN A TABLE WHICH INDICATES THE MANPOWER SITUATION AT THE LOCAL LEVEL. DATA INDICATE THAT LOCAL ROADWAY AGENCIES FACE ENGINEERING MANPOWER PROBLEMS SIMILAR TO THOSE IN LARGER ORGANIZATIONS, ARE PRESENTLY IN NEED OF ALL TYPES OF PERSONNEL, ARE CRITICALLY IN NEED OF JUNIOR ENGINEERS, AND WILL NEED ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL MANPOWER IN PROPORTION TO ADDITIONAL CONSTRUCTION. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT AN IMMEDIATE CONTRIBUTION IS NEEDED BY EVERY AGENCY WITH RESPONSIBLE INTEREST IN ASSISTING IN THE SOLUTION OF ENGINEERING MANPOWER PROBLEMS AT THE LOCAL LEVEL.
