Fuller to lead North Carolina DOT


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has appointed Anthony Fuller director of the rail division, effective June 25. He will supervise day-to-day operations for the division, which oversees more than 3,300 miles of track used by freight and passenger trains.

Fuller most recently served Amtrak, where he oversaw rail operations in the Los Angeles transportation department. He has more than 22 years of experience in the public and private rail sectors, and has worked on projects involving the integration of freight and passenger movements, and revenue testing of high-speed rail equipment. Fuller also is certified in locomotive engineer management.
 
“Anthony brings visionary leadership and broad-based management skills that will strengthen North Carolina’s leadership position in multi-modal transportation,” said NCDOT Deputy Secretary for Transit Paul Morris in a prepared statement.
 
The rail division is in the process of spending more than $500 million in federal funds to improve and modernize the state’s rail system. The division also governs grade crossing safety and operates two state-supported passenger trains.
