Most challenging Public Works project you have been involved with: Working with CS McCrossan on a project that encompassed 5+ miles of roadway mostly through downtown Mpls. We’d start just after bar close which posed its own challenges as you may imagine. We had off duty officers onsite to help with traffic control and security for the entire project. 
 
Most enjoyable Public Works project you have been involved with: Working on the LRT Green line from the Twins stadium to St. Paul while all the underground utilities were being installed. Everyone always sees the finished product at the surface without realizing how much went into the construction underground to make that all possible.

Is there something about you that we would find surprising (e.g., are you a pilot, do you volunteer as a clown, are you a master gardener, etc.)? Love to tinker on old vehicles. Currently it is a 1955 Ford F100.
 
Words of wisdom to share with the membership: Safety is everything. Whether it’s your own, your families, your co-workers or the public. All life is precious.
