Local Mn/DOT district announces
Expanded roles for leadership positions


Mankato, Minn. - Retirements and reorganization in the District 7 office of the Minnesota Department of Transportation have resulted in expanded roles for Assistant District Engineer for Operations Gordon Regenscheid and Assistant District Engineer for Project Delivery Greg Ous of the Mankato office and Superintendent Tom Zimmerman of the Windom office.

"As with many other state agencies, we continue to look at ways to maintain our service levels with a reduced budget," explained Transportation District Engineer Jim Swanson. "Nearly all of our staff is affected by recent strategic staffing, but they are an amazingly dedicated and hard-working team and we believe we can continue to be successful with the recent changes."

Regenscheid's operations management responsibilities have expanded from the east half of the district westward to include all 13 counties in District 7 with the upcoming retirement of Assistant District Engineer George Welk of Windom.
Similarly, Zimmerman has taken responsibility for highway maintenance for all District 7 counties with the crews from 20 truck stations located throughout the district with the recent retirement of Superintendent Gary Martinson of Mankato.
District 7 has also expanded Ous's management role for Project Delivery. Currently he is responsible for environmental documentation and preparing construction plans for contract letting. He will now also be responsible for field construction activities in the district.
