Angela N. Kline, County Highway Engineer for the Calhoun County Road Commission, has received her Professional Engineer (P.E.) license. She is a graduate of Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Engineering.
One requirement in becoming a licensed Professional Engineer is working in the industry for at least four years. Kline has been employed by the Calhoun County Road Commission as an Engineer In Training (EIT) since January, 2004. During that time, Kline managed numerous road and bridge projects and gained experience in construction management of federal aid projects and stormwater management on construction projects. Kline completed the final step in the process to become a licensed Professional Engineer by passing the Principles and Practice of Engineering Civil Breadth and Transportation Depth Exam.
Having a Professional Engineer on staff will save the Road Commission thousands of dollars in fees previously paid to outside engineering firms. Federally funded road and bridge projects require an engineer’s stamp of approval prior to construction. Kline’s engineering skills will also be useful in assisting the Road Commission with their road construction projects by providing planning, design and inspection services.
