DelDOT's Objective

Under the leadership of Delaware's Secretary of Transportation, DelDOT provides a safe, efficient and environmentally sensitive transportation network. We design, construct and maintain roads and bridges, administer highway operations and operate DART First State, Delaware's statewide public transit network.  We are responsible for Delaware's transportation long range planning and work cooperatively with many public and private partners in helping to improve the movement of people and goods in and through our state.  As a member of the I-95 Corridor Coalition, we administer and partner in pilot/experimental projects for many Integrated Transportation Management System (ITMS) contracts for the region.
