Howard E. Hill
As deputy commissioner for engineering and later director of the Department of State highways (1957-1967), hill was the chief coordinator and expeditor of Michigan's most ambitious and most successful highway construction program. He helped forge and direct a staff that put Michigan in the front rank in construction of the Interstate freeway network and in building a state highway system that ranks with the nation's best. Earlier, in an 18 year career with the U.S. Corps. of Engineers (1939-1957), he demonstrated his skills in other areas of transportation, overseeing the development of the Great Lakes connecting waterway channels from airfields in Michigan.
