Pete Prives of the Board of Public Service Construction Division retired last month after 35 years of service to the City and the citizens of St. Louis.
Pete started his career with the City in 1976 as an Engineering Aide I in the Materials Testing Lab and was promoted up through the ranks to Construction Project Leader, the position he held at the time of his retirement.
During his tenure with the City, Pete supervised rehab work at Truman Restorative Center and worked on the construction of the 12th Street Bridge, Gravois Bridget over River des Peres, 14th Street Bridge, 18th Street Bridge, River des Peres Bridge over Chippewa, Union Blvd. Bridge over Terminal Railroad tracks, Kingshighway Bridge over Terminal Railroad Tracks at Penrose Park, and Eads Bridge East approaches.
