The Voice of County Road Officials
The National Association of County Engineers is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional association in our 6th decade. We're the voice America depends on for safe, efficient county roads and bridges. Nationwide, local roads account for about 75% of our highways and roads, and over 231,000 bridges are owned by counties.
Our members are nearly 2,000 county engineers, road managers and related professionals in the US and Canada.
Who We Represent
Our 4 Primary Goals
- Advance county engineering and management by providing a forum for exchange of ideas and information aimed at improving service to the public.
- Influence national legislation affecting county transportation / public works departments.
- Foster and stimulate the growth of individual state organizations.
- Improve relations and the spirit of cooperation among county engineers and related agencies.
What We Do
Advocate in Washington
NACE is instrumental in getting the "county road" view into many federal initiatives. We were successful with MAP-21's (transportation bill reauthorization) streamlining enactment and off-system bridge program preservation. We're partnering with FHWA on Every Day Counts, Toward Zero Deaths and High Risk Rural Roads initiatives.
Educate County Engineers
We hold the Largest Event of County Infrastructure Professionals, attracting around 400 delegates and between 100-140 exhibitors.
