Municipal Roads Superintendent


When you’ve been doing this job for a while it’s almost like the roads and utilities and our bridge are your own and you have to take special care to look after them.  It isn’t like working for a contractor and you just move on to the next job when you’re done. When we rebuild a sidewalk the next day my kids are walking to school on them.  Every day you’re driving on the roads that you built or you look after.  I got the experience they wanted for this job working for contractors but most of the roads supers these days have a an engineering degree or civil technology certificate, especially in the bigger cities.  I think it’s still a good idea that you have experience working on the roads before you take on a job as a road superintendent. I worked for two contractors for a few years and I became a grading foreman.  I liked that work and I figured I would do that forever but two years ago the town advertised for a new roads superintendent and there were a lot of things I liked about the idea of working in my own town – not to mention that they have a really good pension plan and benefits and unless I really screw up somehow the job security is pretty solid.  I’m young to have this job, but we’re not a huge town and it’s working out quite well so far. I’ve had to learn about managing contractors and specifying materials and there’s a lot more to learn. We’ll be actually building our first new major road in 30 years next year so looking after that is going to be a whole new experience. Pipe Layer Assistant
