\ The Agency of Transportation and the Rail & Aviation Bureau has an employee-friendly telework policy, requiring staff to work from the office as little as a one day a week. The rest of the days, staff are welcome to work in the office or work from their productive home offices. Occasional, on-location site visits may be necessary during construction season and design development.
