In Memoriam – Lawrence William Martin

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lawrence William Martin, long-time civil engineer at Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Michigan Road Builders Association (MRBA).

Larry began his career as an engineer with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) where he was responsible for the construction of several freeways and trunklines in the Detroit area. He later joined the Michigan Road Builders Association (MRBA) as an engineer and then served 18 years as its Executive Director. Under Larry’s guidance, the relationship between MDOT and MRBA pivoted from adversarial to cooperative. After retirement, Larry continued to serve as the Administrator of MRBA’s Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Program.

Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2023, at Valley of the Sun Mortuary in Chandler, Arizona. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 31, 2023 at St. Steven’s Catholic Church in Sun Lakes, Arizona. There will be a luncheon immediately following the funeral Mass.

MITA would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family.
