Connecticut DOT Commissioner Eucalitto Named Vice President of AASHTO

HARTFORD, CT — The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) board of directors selected Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner Garrett Eucalitto as its 2023-2024 Vice President. The board also selected Wisconsin Department of Transportation Secretary Craig Thompson as its 2023-2024 President.

“One of my top priorities is to ensure the safety of all roadway users is reflected in every project. Safety remains a guiding principle, whether here in Connecticut or communities around the country,” Eucalitto said. “I thank the board of directors for their confidence and am grateful to serve as vice president. I look forward to working with Secretary Thompson and state DOTs nationwide.”

“We are ecstatic to welcome incoming AASHTO President Thompson and Vice President Eucalitto as they step into important leadership roles within our organization,” AASHTO Executive Director Jim Tymon said. “These accomplished leaders bring a wealth of knowledge that will benefit state DOTs across the nation and help AASHTO deliver safety, mobility, and access for everyone.”

As AASHTO President, Thompson said he will prioritize three major areas of emphasis as he assumes his new role: realizing the promise of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, bolstering safety, and reinvigorating the workforce. As Vice President, Eucalitto will be a member of the AASHTO Executive Committee, and additionally will chair the AASHTO Transportation Policy Forum, a key committee that discusses and recommends legislative, regulatory, and other policy matters to the board. He will also chair the Strategic Management Committee, which focuses on identifying and addressing issues and concerns and developing action plans.
