Creating the Future is no small task, and yet every day our employee-owners do just that.
See highlights from Engineers Week below.
This year’s theme for Engineers Week is Creating the Future. Alliant’s ITS team has designed over 50 miles of fiber optic cable communications for cities, counties, and agencies across Minnesota. This work creates safer roads for users today, and into the future.
Joey Rezac is working on Highway 14 from New Ulm to Nicollet, in Minnesota. The project includes converting 12 miles of two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway and adding two roundabout interchanges. Joey attended a tour of the project site with our MnDOT District 7 partners. See what he had to say about the tour below:
