The Virginia Department of Transportation has named a new engineer to lead projects in the Hampton Roads region.
On Wednesday, VDOT Commissioner Stephen C. Brich announced that Christopher G. Hall was selected as the new Hampton Roads district engineer.
Hall will supervise roadway construction, maintenance and operations for nearly 10,000 lane miles in VDOT’s Hampton Roads District.
The district includes the counties of Accomack, Greensville, Isle of Wight, James City, Northampton, Southampton, Surry, Sussex and York.
“Chris brings extensive leadership, strategic planning, technical expertise, project and resource management skills and experience, all vital to this critical role,” Brich said. “The Hampton Roads region is one with many unique transportation opportunities, all of which Chris is equipped to manage.”
Hall is a licensed professional engineer in Virginia and Ohio, and has nearly 30 years of experience in leadership roles with the United States Army and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
“As a resident of this region, I am looking forward to serving the community and representing VDOT in this role,” Hall said. “I plan to continue the momentum forward that the Hampton Roads region has taken over the past few years in transportation.”
Hall has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the Virginia Military Institute, a master’s in civil engineering from Pennsylvania State University and a master’s in strategic studies from the United States Army War College.
He will start the job at VDOT April 18.
