Item 4.01

Changes in Registrants Certifying
Accountant.

On June 28, 2017, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors
(the Audit Committee) of MYR Group Inc. (the Company) appointed
Crowe Horwath LLP (Crowe) to serve as the Companys independent
registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending
December 31, 2017.

During the years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015,
and the subsequent interim period through June 28, 2017, neither
the Company, nor anyone acting on its behalf, consulted with
Crowe, regarding either (i) the application of accounting
principles to a specified transaction, either completed or
proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on
the Companys financial statements, and neither a written report
nor oral advice was provided to the Company by Crowe that Crowe
concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in
reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing, or financial
reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject
of a disagreement (within the meaning set forth in Item
304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (within
the meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

In connection with the appointment of Crowe, on June 28, 2017,
the Audit Committee dismissed Ernst Young LLP (EY) as the
Companys independent registered public accounting firm.

EYs audit reports on the Companys consolidated financial
statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015
contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were
not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or
accounting principles.

During the Companys two most recent fiscal years, which ended
December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and the subsequent
interim period through June 28, 2017, (i) there were no
disagreements (within the meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(iv)
of Regulation S-K) with EY on any matter of accounting principles
or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope
or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to EYs
satisfaction, would have caused EY to make reference to the
subject matter of the disagreements in connection with their
reports; and (ii) there were no reportable events (within the
meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

In accordance with Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, the Company
requested that EY furnish it with a letter addressed to the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission)
stating whether or not EY agrees with the Companys above
statements relating to EY in this Item 4.01. EY furnished the
requested letter, stating its agreement with such statements, and
a copy is filed as Exhibit 16.1.
