Mayor Andre Dickens Announces Nationwide Search for Transportation Commissioner
ATLANTA—ATLDOT Commissioner Josh Rowan has notified Mayor Andre Dickens that he will resign from his position this summer. The Mayor is announcing a nationwide search for a new leader of the department.
"Commissioner Rowan has been an incredible asset to the City of Atlanta and valued partner as we stood up ATLDOT," said Mayor Dickens. "We will continue to build from the groundwork that he helped us lay as we look to the future. As we continue to move Atlanta forward, I will be seeking a leader who shares our vision of a safe, accessible and equitable transportation system. Atlanta is a city on the move, and we are busy building first-class infrastructure that supports safety for pedestrians, wheelchair users, cyclists and motorists."
Prior to his election as Mayor, then-Councilmember Dickens served as chair of the City Council Transportation Committee and authored the legislation that formally established the Atlanta Department of Transportation.
