Calling it “a bittersweet time,” William G. Dorey, president and chief executive officer of Granite Construction, announced his retirement Monday after 42 years with the company.

James H. Roberts, 53, who has been with the Granite since 1981 and served as executive vice president and chief operating officer since September 2009, will be stepping into the top slot when Dorey leaves Aug. 31. His appointment must be confirmed at the 2010 annual meeting.
