VDOT NAMES NEW NORTHERN VIRGINIA DISTRICT ADMINISTRATOR
Garrett W. Moore Brings 11 Years of VDOT Experience and 20 Years of Military Service To New Post

RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has selected Garrett W. Moore, P.E. as its new district administrator for Northern Virginia. 

Moore, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marines and 11-year VDOT veteran, currently serves as VDOT’s Staunton District administrator.

“Virginia’s most congested and, in many ways, most complex region requires a transportation leader who knows how to provide strategic direction, maintenance oversight, and construction management skills,” said Gregory A. Whirley, VDOT’s commissioner. “Garrett brings detailed knowledge of innovative construction and land-use practices along with field maintenance experience to this vital leadership role.”

Moore will focus on addressing the state’s most congested region and will provide oversight to several billion dollars worth of megaprojects under way in Northern Virginia.

The California native holds a bachelors degree in civil engineering from the University of California at Berkeley and a master’s in civil engineering from Virginia Tech.

He served 20 years as a U. S. Marine in various engineering roles. 

After retiring in 1999, he joined VDOT as an assistant resident engineer in Fredericksburg and became the resident engineer in Warrenton in 2003. 

He was selected as VDOT’s Staunton District administrator in 2005.

Moore and his wife Robin live in Warrenton.
