Garrett T. Eucalitto was nominated by Governor Ned Lamont and confirmed by the legislature as Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) in January 2023. He serves on the Executive Committee and chairs the Operations and Performance Committee; chairs the state’s Vision Zero Council; sits on the Board of Directors of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials; and serves as the state’s Governor’s Highway Safety Representative.
From January 2020 until January 2023, Eucalitto served as the Deputy Commissioner of CTDOT. In this role, he oversaw CTDOT’s Bureaus of Finance & Administration, Policy & Planning, and Public Transportation.
Prior to joining CTDOT, he was Transportation Program Director for the National Governors Association (NGA) in Washington, DC. In this capacity, he was responsible for assisting the nation’s 55 governors (states, territories, and commonwealths) in advancing their policy objectives in transportation, including combating impaired driving and improving safety on the roadways, the implementation of innovative financing tools, transit-oriented development, and accelerating electrification of the transportation sector.
Before joining the NGA, Eucalitto was the Undersecretary for Comprehensive Planning and Intergovernmental Policy for the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management during the administration of Governor Dannel P. Malloy. In this position, he researched, evaluated, and developed transportation, environmental, and regional planning initiatives.
He began his career working in Washington, DC, for six years on the staff of former Senator Joe Lieberman as his legislative assistant, covering appropriations, transportation, and infrastructure. In this role, Eucalitto advocated for Connecticut’s transportation needs at the federal level and led efforts to protect Long Island Sound and improve the state’s air quality and environmental assets. He also secured federal protections to allow continued dredging of the state’s ports and harbors, worked to secure the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and collaborated with CTDOT to secure annual appropriations and discretionary funding and in the consideration and passage of MAP-21.
