Department of Transportation

Commissioner Van Note is responsible for the coordination of a diverse transportation system spread across Maine, a state almost as large as the five other New England States combined. Van Note previously served as the Director of Policy and Planning for the Maine Turnpike Authority (MTA) where he managed major planning efforts that have resulted in multi-million dollar improvements along the I-95 Turnpike corridor, including the implementation of high speed tolling, widening and safety improvements in the Greater Portland area, and planned interchange improvements. From 2002 to 2014, Van Note served as Deputy Commissioner of MaineDOT where he participated in the envisioning, drafting, and passage of almost every major piece of state transportation legislation, including Highway Fund budgets, general obligation bonds, multimodal funding, transportation debt policy, prioritization of state highways, local road assistance, design-build contracting, public-private partnerships, and the Turnpike reform bill.
