Caltrans Director to Lead Western Transportation Association

Sacramento, Ca – Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty today stepped into the role of President of the Western Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (WASHTO) at the organization’s annual meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He previously served as Vice-President. “Transportation agencies continue to face challenges in preserving our nation’s infrastructure, particularly as we look towards the potential insolvency of the Federal Highway Trust Fund and the increasing need for long-term solutions to more sustainable transportation financing,” Dougherty said. “I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve in this position and look forward to addressing these challenges and others as part of this regional organization.” In his role as President, Dougherty will preside over all WASHTO meetings and, along with the Vice President, serve as the Regional Representative to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO) Executive Committee. He replaces outgoing president John Halikowski, Director of the Arizona Department of Transportation....

Malcolm Dougherty was appointed by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. to be the Director of Caltrans in May 2012. He leads the $11 billion organization and 19,000 employees who build, maintain and operate the 50,000 lane miles of California’s world-class transportation system. He is also leading an expansive effort in California to modernize the state’s transportation department to meet safety, mobility, equity and sustainability objectives.

Director Dougherty has over 21 years experience with Caltrans and before becoming Director served as the Chief Deputy, Chief Engineer and Fresno District Director. He also has held management positions in Design, Project Management, Maintenance and Traffic Operations during his career at Caltrans. His focus throughout his career has been on safety, efficient project delivery, partnerships with all stakeholders, and leading a professional and ethical workforce to provide a sustainable transportation system for the people of California.

WASHTO is comprised of the Departments of Transportation or Highway Departments of the 18 westernmost states and representatives of the United States Department of Transportation, the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the

Bureau of Land Management. The transportation agencies of the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, and the Navajo Nation also serve as nonvoting, associate members of the Association.

The purpose of WASHTO is to serve its member departments by:

Contributing to national policies on transportation issues that are responsive to members' needs;
Promoting a closer relationship between its members;
Advocating legislation that supports efficient and effective transportation systems, economic competitiveness and the environmental integrity of member states;
Providing a forum for exchanging ideas, exploring and adapting techniques, promoting quality and best practices for implementation;
Working with the United States Department of Transportation and other governmental agencies.
