The nation’s First State may be one of its smallest, but the Delaware trucking industry still plays a vital role in the American economy and shipping network of the East Coast. The Delaware Department of Transportation strives to improve the quality of life of citizens of Delaware through effective and decisive action at the government level.
History and Achievements of DelDOT
DelDOT rose from the legacy of the DuPont family, after Thomas Coleman DuPont funded the construction the “Grand Boulevard” running the length of the state of Delaware and then donating it to the state. This remains the single greatest highway gift in American history and helped shape the early days of the Delaware trucking industry in the 20th century.
Another notable figure from the history of DelDOT include Joe Vattilana, who spearheaded traffic safety initiatives throughout Delaware in 1963. He started his career as a heavy equipment mechanic, ultimately becoming a Chief Safety Inspector in 1984. He developed a book on work zone safety that altered the perception of accepted safety practices throughout the country and coined the term “black ice” to describe the common roadway hazard. In 1986, he published Pass the Word, a safety manual containing his decades of experience in workplace safety and went on to develop the very first policies used in the Delaware Traffic Control Manual in 1990.
Anne P. Canby, the first female Secretary of DelDOT developed new mass transit systems and helped move DelDOT from a highway focus to an overall transportation focus. DelDOT’s first modern Traffic Engineer bought cutting-edge technology to overhaul the state’s traffic infrastructure. Earnest Davidson was a key figure in the earliest years of DelDOT, holding various pivotal roles in the organization over the years.
These individuals are prime examples of DelDOT’s commitment to not only serving the citizens of Delaware, but also the Delaware trucking industry and its position as a key player in the shipping network of the American East Coast.
