About J.M. Teague Engineering
J.M. Teague Engineering and Planning is nestled into the Town of Waynesville, the largest small town west of Asheville and the county seat of Haywood County, NC. Waynesville is not only the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in the nation, but there are 14 mountain peaks in Haywood County that are higher than 6,000 feet, more than any other county east of the Mississippi River.
That means that JMTE is accustomed to dealing with the extra challenges that come from steep mountain grades, horizontal and vertical sight distance, and winding roads. As a small firm, JMTE can provide the crucial time and attention needed to successfully achieve solutions for the many traffic challenges impacting communities throughout the region.
The company was founded in 2010 by J.M. (Mark) Teague, a Licensed Professional Engineer and Certified Public Manager with more than 25 years of experience as a transportation engineer. Formerly with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Mark has spent most of his career working with small towns and is well versed in the challenges and opportunities they present. During his 13 years as a transportation engineering manager at NCDOT, he was ultimately responsible for project development and management, maintenance programs, planning workflow, department safety, and developing employee work skills, knowledge, and training.
Since JMTE opened, Mark has grown the company to include a strong team of highly-qualified traffic engineers, planners and support technicians. We also partner with several professional firms and individuals throughout the Southeast. These relationships enable JMTE and our partners to provide multi-disciplined engineering, surveying, and project management for a wide array of engineering challenges.
JMTE is certified by NCDOT as Small Business Professional Firm and as a Private Engineering Consultant. In addition to North Carolina, we are prequalified by the Departments of Transportation in Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee to provide transportation engineering and planning services. JMTE is licensed as a professional engineer in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. We serve the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S., with a concentrated focus on projects in Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee.
