What does the DOT board do? A look at responsibilities

POSTED: April 29, 2008 5:00 a.m.

Evans’ replacement would be responsible for helping oversee state roads. Here is more about what the board does and its responsibilities:

  • The State Transportation Board is made up of members from each of Georgia’s 13 congressional districts.
  • The board is one of the few appointments made directly by the legislature and is one of the most prized political
    appointments in state government.
  • While board members draw no salary, they have an opportunity to influence transportation projects in their respective districts.
  • Other duties of the board include naming the commissioner, designating which public roads are encompassed within the state highway system, approving long-range transportation plans, overseeing the administration of construction contracts and authorizing lease agreements.
