In 2011, the NADO Research Foundation released the report CONNECTING THE D•O•T•S, A Guide for Connecting with Your Department of Transportation (PDF), a special report by David Cole, former Commissioner of the Maine Department of Transportation and the former CEO of the Eastern Maine Development Corporation (EMDC).  The document is an entertaining yet informative guidebook for creative problem solving, building stronger state and local partnerships, and understanding the unique opportunities that transportation and economic development projects bring to regions and communities.  Cole uses his personal experiences from the state DOT and regional economic development worlds to tell a story and to share several important life lessons and takeaways.  This report will help policy makers, practitioners and other stakeholders think differently about the challenges and opportunities ahead for the nation and our local communities.

This report was produced through the NADO Research Foundation’s Center for Transportation Advancement and Regional Development under a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration.
