Trump Nominates Trombino as Federal Highway Administrator


President Trump has nominated Paul Trombino, the former director of the Iowa Department of Transportation, to serve as the next administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Mr. Trombino came to the Iowa DOT in April 2011 after 17 years with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. He served as the 2016 AASHTO president and was active on the AASHTO-AGC-ARTBA Joint Committee. Mr. Trombino was well respected by industry and his peers during his tenure as DOT director.
During his service in Iowa, he played a key role in pushing the Iowa Legislature to approve a 10-cent-per-gallon increase in gasoline and diesel fuel taxes to generate about $200 million annually in additional money for state and local road and bridge construction projects. He also was involved in an initiative in which Iowa is attempting to become one of the first states in the nation to develop a digital driver’s license that can be used as an app on smartphones. The U.S. Senate must still confirm Mr. Trombino as FHWA Administrator.
