    County merges transportation and waste management departments

    Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet has re-organized the Office of Transportation Services and the Department of Construction and Waste Management, a change that went into effect December 20, 2012.

    The new Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure will incorporate the Office of Transportation Services - which handles roadway planning, local transportation projects and transit functions - with the capital planning, budgeting, design and construction management functions currently housed in the Department of Construction and Waste Management.

    “This newly configured department will allow for a more streamlined focus of the transportation aspect of the county’s current capital projects,” said Hemstreet. “Given that our focus will include more transportation-related projects in the future rather than less, it’s important to have a strong link to the capital project management function and to strengthen ties to planning, budgeting, design and construction.”

    The new department will be led on an interim basis by Rick Conner, who is currently serving as Interim Director of the Office of Transportation Services. The county is currently recruiting to fill the position of Director of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure on a permanent basis.

    The Department of General Services will take over the other programs that are currently part of the Department of Construction and Waste Management - the Energy and Environmental Management Program and the Solid Waste Division, including landfill operations.
