The 2011 U.S. Highway, Street & Bridge Construction Salary & Hourly Wage Guides from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) benchmarks salary and wage information for 112 occupations in the transportation design and construction industry, including management, engineering, construction, finance, administrative, and safety-related positions.
In the guides, for each occupation, the average and median annual salary and hourly wage paid, as well as break-points for both at the 10th, 25th, 75th and 90th percentiles, are listed. The guides use the most recently released data (May 2011) from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS project collected wage and salary information from all U.S. business sectors and includes data and estimates for 350,000 employees working at construction firms that classified their primary business as “highways, streets, and bridges.”
