Gene Calvert, Safety Engineer, City of New Braunfels DOT, TX ([email protected])
My name is Gene Calvert. I am the Assistant Public Works Director for the City of New Braunfels, Texas. Under my adminitrative overview is the Streets and Drainage Divsion, Capital Programs, Solid Waste Division and Facilities Management. With over 35 years of experince in building and maintaining streets and highways, I have had the oppportunity to work as a private consultant, directed LTAP training programs, and managed city and county government highway agencies. My career has spanned six states from coast to coast, from border to border, and in the heartland of the country,

Through all of this I find one underlying need. The need to build streets and highways that are safer and more cost effective to maintain.

Through this course I hope to learn how to provide insight from the local government perspective to effectively implement a program for Road Diets.
