Secretary Foxx pays a Small Business Week visit

Every year, we celebrate National Small Business Week to recognize the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.

Yesterday, Secretary Foxx visited Washington, DC's Symmetra Design, a team of planners, engineers, and consultants who have made their mark on transportation with innovative projects like the Bowie, MD, MARC Station Sector Plan, and the Rhode Island Avenue Great Streets Corridor Study.

Symmetra is also a woman-owned small business and participates in the Mentor/Protégé Program operated by our Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU).
