Calvert County Government via Facebook

Robert Gray has worked for Calvert County Government for 28 years. As traffic engineering technician, Robert manages the SMART speed trailer program, documents damaged guardrails for repair, collects data for the Sheriff’s Office from traffic control devices and responds to citizen and county agency complaints. He hopes to modernize the county’s traffic engineering equipment and monitor data online rather than in the field. Doing so will provide a greater level of flexibility to manage traffic demands as well as increase safety measures for technicians.

“I love my job,” Robert said. “It has always been my goal to become the traffic engineer. When I first started, I told the engineer at the time that one day I would have her job. I give a lot of thanks to Calvin Curtis Sr., Amos Young, Frederick Holland, Carlton Wallace, Henry Harris, Wilson Mason and John Cranford Sr. who were at Highway Maintenance when I started for supporting, pushing and motivating me to achieve my goals and beyond.”

Robert graduated from the management program at the College of Southern Maryland and completed traffic engineering courses at the University of Maryland Center for Technology. He began his career in Calvert County Government at the Barstow Landfill and eventually landed in the Highway Maintenance Division. Fifteen years later, Robert had proven himself such an asset to the team he transitioned into a newly created litter control coordinator position and eventually, traffic engineering technician.

In his free time, if he’s not spending time with his family and friends, Robert likes to watch sports. Join us in thanking Robert for his service.
