SAI Consulting Engineers, Inc. was invaded by a small horde of young children eager to learn what their parents do everyday at one of only two transportation dedicated civil engineering firms in the state of Pennsylvania. It was a fun-filled and productive day for all who participated!

Lawmakers in Washington tend to define success “as last year's budget number,” said Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx during a visit Wednesday to Pittsburgh.

This, he said, is not enough to repair and improve the nation's aging infrastructure.

“Congress has used a variety of duct tape and chewing gum over these six years to patch together additional money just to keep the levels stable, but that says nothing about what the country actually needs,” he said.

SAI’s Bill Ferko, P.E. recently took time out of his busy schedule to spend time with an energetic group of third graders from Winchester Thurston School in Pittsburgh, PA to talk about what it means to be a professional engineer! The students were eager to show their gratitude and sent Bill a beautiful handwritten note for all of his efforts.

Investing in transportation creates jobs for those hardworking Americans who build the infrastructure we rely on to live productive, fulfilling lives. These jobs are opportunities for thousands of American workers to earn a paycheck, gain skills and advance their careers in a challenging and rewarding field. Today, many folks begin on construction sites as laborers and leave as equipment operators, managers or other positions of increasing rank.



Design team completed work order on time and within budget. SAI did an excellent job coordinating with PHMC, DEP, PAFBC and Jefferson County Conservation District.
