Berg is a native of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in civil and environmental engineering.

He joined WisDOT as an engineer in the Green Bay office, steadily rising through the ranks, eventually becoming a supervisor in design and construction in 1988. In 2000, Berg was named district director for WisDOT’s former District 4, heading up the department’s Wisconsin Rapids office. In 2005, Berg returned to Green Bay as director of the Northeast Region, where he oversaw many large and small transportation improvement projects, including the start of construction on the massive US 41 project.
