MARIETTA — ODOT District 10 Deputy Director Steve Williams has announced his retirement, effective at the end of May.
Williams began his career at ODOT in July 1987 as an Engineer-in-Training. Since then he has held multiple positions within the department, including Project Engineer, Area Construction Engineer and District Construction Engineer. Williams was appointed District Deputy Director in January 2011.
During his tenure at ODOT he has advanced over $1.2 billion of new construction, including US Route 50 Athens to Coolville, US Route 33 Athens to Darwin, the Ravenswood Connector, the Pomeroy-Mason Bridge and the Nelsonville Bypass.
“I have truly been blessed to be from D10 and work in D10 my entire career,” said Williams. “There are many things that I will miss about ODOT, but my most cherished memories will be of the outstanding employees of District 10.”
Williams has a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Ohio University and is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Ohio.
District 10 Business and Human Resources Administrator Darla Miller has been appointed to serve as interim Deputy Director until a replacement is hired.
