VDOT Announces New Leadership for Fredericksburg District
Marcie Parker, P.E., will oversee all VDOT construction, maintenance and operations programs in the 14-county Fredericksburg District
FREDERICKSBURG – Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick announced today that he has named Marcie Parker, P.E., as the agency’s new Fredericksburg District Administrator.
Parker will oversee construction, maintenance and operations for 11,500 miles of state-maintained roads in the 14-county Fredericksburg District. She was appointed Acting District Administrator in January.
“Marcie Parker is a talented public servant who has a wide range of practical field experience in highway maintenance and construction,” said VDOT Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick. “She has high expectations in everything she does, and she is driven by results. I am confident that she will work with communities to develop and deliver common-sense transportation solutions that reduce congestion, promote economic development, and improve safety.”
Parker has more than 20 years of transportation experience in Virginia. Since being named Assistant District Administrator for Maintenance and Operations in 2010, Parker has led emergency response operations for snow removal, and was responsible for delivering a $120 million maintenance program districtwide, which includes oversight of all bridges, overpasses, structures and pavement conditions. Under her leadership, pavement conditions were elevated on Interstate 95 in Caroline, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties, and are in 100 percent compliance with ride quality standards.
Prior to that role, Parker served as Saluda Residency Administrator from 2001-2010 in the Middle Peninsula, and as Norfolk Residency Assistant Residency Administrator from 1996-2001 in Hampton Roads. She joined VDOT in 1993 as a transportation engineer trainee.
Parker is a graduate of Clemson University, and holds an undergraduate degree in civil engineering. She has held a Professional Engineer’s license in Virginia since 1999.
Parker lives in Spotsylvania County with her husband and two sons.
VDOT’s 14-county Fredericksburg District includes the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford in the Fredericksburg area; Northumberland, Richmond, Lancaster and Westmoreland counties in the Northern Neck; Essex, Gloucester, King & Queen, King William, Mathews and Middlesex counties in the Middle Peninsula.
