Nicole Nason has become the Federal Highway Administration’s 26th Administrator following a 95-1 U.S. Senate vote. The former National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator and past Mothers Against Drunk Driving director arrives at the agency with deep experience in both the Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal government.

“We are very pleased to hear the results of the confirmation hearing, and look forward to working with Ms. Nason and her staff,” says American Concrete Pavement Association CEO Gerald Voigt, P.E.  “We have enjoyed a strong and positive relationship with the FHWA over the years, and are confident [it] will continue as the new Administrator leads the agency to seize opportunities and solve challenges now and in the future.”
