WASHINGTON, D.C. — Chambers County Highway Engineer Josh Harvill, was installed as southeast region vice president of the National Association of County Engineers (NACE) at the recent annual meeting held by videoconference. Harvill’s term will run through 2021.

NACE is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional association in its 64th year, representing over 3,000 county and road officials and related professionals in the U.S. and Canada. In the U.S., local roads account for about 75 percent of highways and roads, or 2.93 million miles. Counties manage 1.74 million miles of those roads. Counties also own 231,000 bridges and operate one-third of the nation’s transit systems.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve the nation’s county road professionals this year,” Harvill said. “County road infrastructure is the backbone of America’s transportation network. I look forward to working with the nation’s county road professionals to ensure adequate federal resources are available for local infrastructure investment.”
