Kimley-Horn of DC | 1100 New Jersey Avenue, SE Suite 420 | Washington, DC 20003

Description:

 

Join WTS-DC for coffee and conversation with Jennifer Mitchell, Director of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), the state agency responsible for funding and oversight of public transit systems and passenger and freight rail programs across the Commonwealth. Director Mitchell will share her professional experiences and provide career tips with attendees in a casual setting.

Jennifer Mitchell was appointed Director of DRPT in January 2018 by Governor Ralph Northam. In her time with DRPT, Jennifer has led several high priority transportation initiatives for the Commonwealth, including the recently announced $3.7 billion deal with CSX to construct the Long Bridge and dramatically expand passenger rail in the Commonwealth, legislation that provided dedicated funding and governance reforms for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA), new sources of transit funding from High Occupancy Tolling projects in northern Virginia and Hampton Roads, creation of the Metro Safety Commission, developing more rigorous and transparent allocation processes for statewide transit funding, extending passenger rail to Roanoke, and opening the “Pulse” Bus Rapid Transit system in Richmond, VA. She also serves as a member of the Commonwealth Transportation Board and is a board member of several transit agencies across the Commonwealth.
