Boedeker promoted to lead Dubois maintenance crew
Paul Boedeker has been promoted to maintenance foreman to lead the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s maintenance crew in the Dubois area.
Boedeker has worked as a maintenance worker in Dubois since March 1988.
“I’m enjoying the challenge of my new responsibilities,” Boedeker said.
Boedeker, 48, is a Dubois native and graduate of Dubois High School.
"Paul is very deserving of this promotion, and he faces a big challenge. Paul has a lifetime of experience in knowing the area, and that'll be an asset,” said Ron Huff, WYDOT district maintenance engineer in Basin. "Dubois is one of our most diverse maintenance stations in Wyoming. On the east side of Dubois, you have sagebrush flat lands. On the west side, you have a mountainous environment, with many environmental issues, and the ability to keep that road open in the winter is a tremendous challenge. With the new highway construction over Togwotee Pass, it's going to require a new, large effort to remove snow on the wider highway."
Boedeker has three sons.
Boedeker is a professional wildlife artist. He also enjoys hunting, fishing and golf in his spare time.
Boedeker replaced former Dubois foreman Jerry Marrou, who retired earlier this year.
