Donohue, a 14-year Skanska employee, will in his new role be involved with the Fore River Bridge project in Massachusetts, and will provide executive oversight on all New York City Department of Transportation bridge projects. In announcing this promotion, Senior Vice President Terry Daly noted Donohue’s success has been through his “outstanding teamwork and dedication on our projects.”
