The American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1958 with the conception and inception of the first Chartered Section (Harrisburg Section) credited to a small group of dedicated engineers from the Pennsylvania Department of Highways, in association with a group of outstanding contractors, material suppliers, and consulting engineers in the Harrisburg area. Since then, ASHE has grown into an organization consisting of over 6,000 members, and over 40 operating sections in 9 regions throughout the U.S.
The backbone of ASHE is its sections operating at the local level. Sections organize a variety of activities and events such as luncheons and seminars for technical sharing, and social and networking events. Each section is governed by a board of directors made up of local members. The Tennessee Valley chapter serves East Tennessee.
“The mission of the American Society of Highway Engineers is to provide a forum for members and partners of the highway industry to promote a safe, efficient and sustainable transportation system through education, innovation, and fellowship.”
