Jim Boxold was named Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation by Governor Rick Scott in December 2014. As Secretary, he is focused on improving the transportation network to benefit residents, visitors and Florida's economic growth.
Under Governor Scott, the state has significantly increased its transportation investments, providing the largest work program in the department's 100-year history two years in a row. These investments are paying off. Florida's transportation infrastructure is consistently ranked among the best in the country by the U.S. Chamber Foundation.
Secretary Boxold has challenged FDOT employees to build on that success by emphasizing innovation, continuing to seek ways to be more efficient in its operations and leveraging Florida's exceptional position to improve the state's transportation system even more.
