Civil Engineering Grad Making News

The Daily Reporter, which covers Wisconsin construction and transportation news, honored its 29 Newsmakers of the Year recently at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Honorees included UWM College of Engineering & Applied Science alumnus Roberto Gutierrez who is SE Freeways Chief at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Among other accomplishments, Gutierrez is credited with shaving $600 million off the cost of the Zoo Interchange (originally bid at more than $2 billion) when he and his team identified savings that could be obtained without lowering the final product’s quality.
