Peoria introduces new city engineer
Former Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) engineer Bill Lewis recently joined the City of Peoria Engineering Division of Public Works as its city engineer.
Lewis' duties as city engineer include planning for new infrastructure and maintaining the existing streets and roads. He will also work on improving development standards.
“Mr. Lewis is an action-oriented and forward thinker," Director of Public Works Scott Reeise said. "His past experience for IDOT, along with his knowledge of current infrastructure priorities, will be valuable as the Public Works Department moves forward.”
Reeise is familiar with Lewis' previous work: they collaborated on the Sheridan Road and Nebraska Avenue bridge projects. They also worked together on the Warehouse District Reconstruction and Streetscaping.
Lewis brings 27 years of IDOT experience to the city's engineering division. His last position with IDOT was as senior construction field engineer. His projects include the rebuild of I-74 and the Allen Road Improvement Project. He is a licensed professional engineer with a bachelor's in civil engineering, which he earned from Bradley University in 1997.
Married with four children, Lewis is a long-time resident of Peoria. He has lived in the city for 27 years.
