Bobbi Rexroad Highway Technician

Bobbi RexroadBobbi Rexroad, a highway technician and timekeeper in the Marietta Traffic Department, installs and repairs signs, including signs for scheduled construction and emergencies, and stripes roadways. Last year she installed memorial markers around District 10 where historic bridges once stood.

Rexroad has worked in the Traffic Department for two years and as a highway technician in Athens County for five.

"The Traffic Department is more physically demanding than the Maintenance Department, mainly due to the fact the equipment is so heavy, almost half as much as I weigh," she said. "So I've learned to work smarter, not harder."
