Carla Maynard graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1996. She worked for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development for 14 years as a Traffic Engineer and Project Engineer on highway construction projects where she helped design the first set of Traffic Control Standards (TC sheets) for them.
Carla is a licensed and accredited civil engineer in multiple states including Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi. She is also certified by ATSSA as a Traffic Control Designer, and she ensures that all of her employees are certified Traffic Control Technicians and Traffic Control Supervisors. Because of her expertise in traffic engineering, Carla helps customers design traffic-control plans for their construction projects, and she takes the guess-work out of what can be an overwhelming task of creating traffic diagrams that adhere to current safety regulations.
