AASHTO Releases Annual Transportation Salary Survey

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has issued its annual job classifications and salary information survey for state transportation departments.

Developed by AASHTO’s Committee on Human Resources, the survey is viewed as a “tool” intended for human resource administrators and others whose work involves studying and analyzing job classifications, writing job descriptions, and developing/designing pay structures unique to departments of transportation.

AASHTO’s survey – based on 2018 information – contains 74 matched titles, divided into five broad categories: administrative, engineering, general, maintenance, and other.

For each title, a brief description, salary range, and actual salary are included, along with a “benefits section” providing details on medical insurance, paid time off, and retirement plans. AASHTO added that websites for job class specifications, salary information, and a state department of transportation contact list are provided to obtain additional information not part of this survey.

The organization said its annual salary survey is a free online item for all AASHTO E-Affiliates and is available through the AASHTO store at: https://store.transportation.org/Item/PublicationDetail?ID=4193.

The report is available in two formats: as a PDF download, which includes the full data of the report, and as an MS Excel spreadsheet, which allows users to sort the data and perform specialized data analysis.
