Oklahoma DOT appoints Sullivan head of capital programs


The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has named Dawn Sullivan director of capital programs.

Dawn Sullivan

Sullivan has been serving as environmental programs division engineer since 2007. Prior to that appointment, she was the planning and research division engineer, according to an ODOT press release.

She joined ODOT in 1988 as a summer engineering student at the Sand Springs Residency. She moved to the department's bridge division as a student engineer, and in 1991 joined the engineer-in-training program.

After a stint as an engineer in training, she moved to the city of Oklahoma's planning division, where she served from 1994 to 1999. After returning to ODOT, she was promoted to assistant planning and research division engineer in 2000, then division engineer where she remained until she becoming environmental programs division engineer.

In her new position, Sullivan will oversee programs, facilities management, project management and local government divisions, along with the waterways branch in addition to the tribal liaison program.
