State departments of transportation are responsible for providing a safe, efficient, and effective transportation system of infrastructure and services. To meet these responsibilities, transportation agencies need a highly skilled workforce with the expertise required to identify and address current transportation needs while also being prepared to address the challenges of the future.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 1008: Attracting, Retaining, and Developing the 2030 Transportation Workforce: Design, Construction, and Maintenance provides a guide with specific strategies and action plans to help agencies identify and address workforce needs through 2030 and beyond.
Supplemental to the report are an Executive Summary, a Technical Memorandum, a Research Process Document, and a Presentation.
