Project Steering Committee (PSC)


The Project Steering Committee's (PSC) role is to ensure that key stakeholders are informed and kept up-to-date on project activities.

The PSC consists of representatives from Olmsted County, ROCOG, City of Rochester, City of Stewartville, Mn/DOT, and the FHWA. The PSC will be involved continuously throughout the project, and will generally meet monthly/bi-monthly. Members of the PSC include:

  • Charlie Reiter, Transportation Planner, ROCOG/Olmsted County
  • Dave Pesch, Transportation Planner, ROCOG/Olmsted County
  • Mike Sheehan, County Engineer, Olmsted County
