Oates Associates would like to introduce some of our newest employees:  Bentley Gedris, Phillip Jones and Ryne Wirtjes.  Bentley and Ryne support the Transportation Group while Phillip supports the Facilities Group.

Bentley, who brings six years of experience in the engineering field, will focus on Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and Missouri local agency assignments.  He is currently assisting with the design of ADA-compliant curb ramps and sidewalks along Route B for MoDOT.  Ryne, a recent SIUE graduate, brings flexibility to the team.  He will assist with local agency and DOT roadway projects, both designing improvements and performing field work.

Phillip’s ten years of experience includes site, water/wastewater and pedestrian enhancement projects.  He is currently working on a new Park N Ride lot for Madison County Transit and a new synthetic turf multi-purpose field at The Principia School.
