“Our nation is at an inflection point in its transportation history,” says Carlos Braceras, AASHTO’s 2018-2019 President and executive director of the Utah Department of Transportation. Federal transportation funding continues to fall short of the amount needed to repair and modernize America’s highways, bridges, transit, rail and active transportation facilities. At the same time the construction industry is facing the challenge of attracting, training and retaining the thousands of highly skilled workers that will be needed to build and maintain the highly technical transportation systems of the future. President Braceras has made workforce development, robust federal transportation funding and educating the public about the value of transportation his top emphasis areas. Meet President Braceras and learn more about these critical issues in his own words, in this 2018-2019 Presidential Profile Video by AASHTO Transportation TV.
