WASHINGTON, DC… Maryland Department of Transportation’s Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy and Freight, Caitlin Hughes Rayman, has been selected to be the Director of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Freight Management and Operations.
“I commend the Federal Highway Administration for selecting Caitlin Hughes Rayman to lead the Office of Freight Management and Operations,” said Coalition for America’s Gateways and Trade Corridors (Coalition) Chairman Mortimer Downey. “I have every confidence that Caitlin will excel in this position and increase the deference given to freight transportation. The Administration will undoubtedly find her knowledgebase and leadership skills as tremendous assets among many others she possesses.”
