Kyle has extensive experience providing design engineering services for urban reconstruct projects, four-lane divided highway expansions, and several asphalt pavement replacement projects with unique elements such as box culverts, shared use paths, traffic control, culvert pipe and bridge rehabilitation, and bridge replacements. Through his design and construction experience with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), he has assisted with projects ranging from rural mills and overlays, rural roundabouts, urban concrete pavement reconstruction and feasibility studies.

Ryan serves as a civil engineering technician and comes to ISG with several years of experience in the private and public sectors conducting construction inspections and topographic surveys, and creating construction plans.
