The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) hired two new district managers for Bristol and Salem on Feb. 3.
Ken King will cover the Salem District, and Randy Hamilton will serve the Bristol District. Their responsibilities include leading construction, maintenance and operations programs.
King has more than 24 years of experience in transportation. He served as the Virginia Department of Transportation’s regional operations director for multiple districts for almost nine years. He was in charge of construction of the transportation operations center and he established the customer service center. His transportation career began with the North Carolina Department of Transportation before he moved to Virginia.
Hamilton joined the Virginia Department of Transportation in 1987. He recently served as program investment management director in the Lynchburg district and served as a resident engineer in the Chatham area.
“Both Ken and Randy have a wealth of experience and successful backgrounds to lead VDOT’s transportation program in the southwestern part of the state,” VDOT Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick said. “I am confident that they will continue the good work of the Salem and Bristol districts in delivering VDOT’s construction and maintenance program, and keep southwestern Virginia moving smoothly and safely.”
