Michael T Gramza II, P.E., has joined national architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann as the Ohio Infrastructure Practice Leader, based in the firm’s Toledo office. Gramza brings more than three decades of experience leading signature projects for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to his new position. For Bergmann, he will oversee all infrastructure projects in the state of Ohio.
Most recently Gramza served as the District Capital Program Administrator for ODOT District 2, where he managed the planning, design and construction of projects for that region. Prior to that, he was a planning and engineering administrator, overseeing more than 400 highway projects with a total value of $1.1 billion. Gramza led the Veteran’s Glass City Skyway bridge project, as the Construction Project Manager, which at its time was the largest single project contract in the history of ODOT, opening to traffic in 2007.
“Gramza is an important staff addition for us in our growing Toledo location”, said Jeremy Hedden, vice president of Midwest Infrastructure for Bergmann. “His experience, leadership and skills as an engineer will elevate our practice across the state. Plus, Mike is a great fit for Team Bergmann where we value collaboration, innovation and excellence.”
As the Ohio Infrastructure Practice Leader, Gramza will oversee Bergmann’s infrastructure services throughout Ohio. Services offered include highway, bridge, rail, traffic and water resources. His addition will provide strong leadership to the existing infrastructure staff that currently work from our Toledo location.
Gramza is a graduate of the University of Toledo with a degree in Civil Engineering. The Governor of Ohio presented Gramza with a Service Recognition upon his ODOT retirement and the Mayor of Toledo named Gramza “Citizen of the Month” for his work on the Veteran’s Glass City Skyway bridge. Gramza was interviewed on National Public Radio (NPR) for the 50th anniversary of the interstate system. Gramza resides in Maumee with his wife Lisa and has two grown children Kristin and Ben.
