Bur began his career as an intern for three summers with the Maryland State Highway Administration. He joined TxDOT in 1997 in the San Angelo Area Office and transferred to the Dallas District Roadway Design Section in June 2002. There, he managed the SH 161 project in Grand Prairie, the Spur 366/Woodall Rodgers Extension, and Project Pegasus.

In 2011, Bur became the Dallas District Project Delivery Office supervisor. In 2013, Bur was named the central service center manager for the Professional Engineering Procurement Services Division, serving the needs of all 19 non-metro districts and 14 divisions. He rejoined the Dallas District in 2014, as director of transportation planning and development. In July 2017, Bur was named the Dallas deputy district engineer. He became the district engineer in June 2018 and oversaw a portfolio of planning projects valued at $24 billion, a construction portfolio of traditional construction projects valued at more than $2 billion, and multiple district-led design-build projects in procurement and construction valued at almost $5 billion.

Bur is a recipient of the DeWitt C. Greer Award. He served on the House Bill 20 Committee that set guidance for project selection for Proposition 1 and 7 funding, and served on a committee to establish a new software program for project delivery support.

Bur is a 1996 graduate of the University of Maryland with a bachelor of science in civil engineering with an emphasis on transportation and hydraulics.
