DEPARTMENT: DPS Roads Division, Bridge Maintenance Unit
PROJECT MANAGER: Steve Shaya
Kevin Gunn has worked for the Wayne County DPS Roads Division for more than 32 years, all of those years in the Bridge Maintennace Unit. He began as a seasonal employee, then after being hired permanently worked his way up to Department Manager III.
"He's a phenomenal leader, and he is an encyclopedia of knowledge," said Steve Shaya, who has been Gunn's supervisor for three months. "He's a man of seriousness and integrity and when it comes down to it he's 'Mr. Clutch'. The way he handled Grosse Ile Parkway Bridge is a perfect indication. He and his team were working around the clock to get that bridge repaired in a remarkably short period of time considering all that had to be done."
