Sidney May, P.E.

Mrs. May is a licensed civil engineer with over 10 years of experience. Led by passion, she has secured traditional jobs and gained knowledge and experience in both the public and private sectors. Mrs. May has built her career within various aspects of transportation including roadway design, temporary traffic control design, geotechnical design and review, environmental planning and compliance, and pavement and drainage design.

Mrs. May began her career as a co-op student analyzing lidar data and assisting in conducting aerial surveys. Upon receipt of her B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Alabama, she went on to pursue a career in transportation where she has led subsurface investigations and pavement rehabilitation studies for recommendations on various pavement failure types such as full depth reclamation, lime stabilization, soil-cement stabilization, historic preservation and restoration in flexible, rigid, and masonry materials. She has been intricately involved in project scope recommendations and media press releases while working in construction stormwater. Mrs. May continued her career in environmental planning and compliance ensuring that all construction projects, both state and federal, adhered to the latest environmental laws and regulations. Consequently, she has cultivated relationships with state and federal agencies such as ADEM (Alabama Department of Environmental Management), USACE (US Army Corps of Engineers), SHPO/AHC (State Historic Preservation Office/Alabama Historic Commission), and US Fish and Wildlife. She has led training seminars on the importance of temporary traffic control and believes that successfully-managed projects all start and end with competence, confidence, and communication amongst all individuals involved in project management and completion.

Mrs. May is currently an active member of ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) where she holds a branch leadership position. She is also working to help establish a coalition for the Alabama Dam Safety Program. Mrs. May is also active in her community, serving as an advisory board member to local engineering academies and mentoring local high school students, motivating them to pursue careers in engineering.
