Shiloh Wahl has been named the new district engineer for the Minnesota Department of Transportation District 4. Over the past year, Wahl has been leading District 4 as the acting district engineer after Jody Martinson, the district engineer since 2012, was appointed to serve as Assistant Commissioner Operations Division in St. Paul.
As district engineer, Wahl will lead District 4, a 12-county region in west central Minnesota with more than 260 employees. District 4, one of eight MnDOT districts, is responsible for the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operations of the state transportation system in west central Minnesota.
Wahl has been with MnDOT for nearly 20 years. He started his career in District 4, Detroit Lakes, rotating through several areas as a graduate engineer, before serving as a project engineer in construction for more than eight years. While in that role, Wahl worked on various construction projects including the Highway 336 project near Moorhead and the Highway 10 “Connect Detroit Lakes” project.
