Real solutions to meet genuine challenges. Innovative ideas to take on growing realities. That's the Federal Highway Administration - Leaders in Paving the Way on the Road to Success.
This position is located in the Construction Branch of a Federal Lands Highway (FLH) Division which is part of the Federal Highway Administration. You will serve as the Assistant Project Engineer on a complex construction project or as a Project Engineer on less complex highway/road construction projects.
The Western Federal Lands Highway Division (WFLHD) operates as part of the Federal Lands Highway Program, serving the needs of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming.
While Vancouver, Washington, is the permanent duty station, employees will be assigned to temporary duty at project offices located near the assigned highway construction site. Employees selected for these positions will be assigned to temporary duty approximately 75 percent of the work year, returning to Vancouver during winter shutdown and annual training. Employees receive lodging and per diem allowances while assigned to temporary duty locations.
At the full performance level, the ideal candidates have experience inspecting and administering all phases of highway construction contracts. At the lower grade levels, ideal candidates will have education or experience in a major portion of highway construction, such as grading, drainage, bridge construction, retaining wall construction, traffic flow and maintenance, and recycled or conventional paving.
