Hal King, a longtime ARTBA member and supporter, died Nov. 21 at his home in Chap, Virginia. He was 93.
He began his road-building career with the New York Department of Public Works and later joined the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, forerunner of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). In Washington, D.C., he worked with Lady Bird Johnson on the Highway Beautification Act.
King was transferred to Virginia to head FHWA’s Regional Office in Richmond, and later became a Virginia State Highway Commissioner. He was co-founder of the Burton, Adams, Kemp, and King engineering firm.
ARTBA extends its condolences to his wife and other family members and friends.
