The Mississippi Department of Transportation’s executive director, Larry L. “Butch” Brown, announced the appointment of William M. Jamieson Jr. as District I engineer on Thursday.

Jamieson was formerly an assistant district engineer in maintenance. He will assume the responsibilities of the position upon the June 30 retirement of the current District I engineer, Paul Swindoll. Effective July 1, Jamieson’s office will be in Tupelo.

Jamieson began his MDOT career 31 years ago in the Roadway Design Division of the Jackson office. After four years he transferred to District 1. He worked in the Tupelo Project Office for about a year and then moved into the district office as an assistant to the district construction engineer. In 1992, Jamieson was promoted to assistant district maintenance engineer. He held that position until he was promoted to MDOT engineer administrator assistant/maintenance in June 2005.

As District I engineer, Jamieson will oversee all maintenance, construction and administration operations, along with some additional services provided statewide.

Deputy Executive Director Harry Lee James said, “I am confident that during this transition period, all MDOT employees will lend their support to him as he assumes his new duties.”
