Marc Coté has been selected as the new Delaware Department of Transportation director of planning effective Sunday, March 1. He is replacing Drew Boyce, who is retiring after more than 34 years of state employment.
During his 30-year career with DelDOT, Coté has worked in road design and served as a project manager in corridor, quality and project management in the Division of Transportation Solutions. In 2005, he moved to the division of planning to become the subdivision engineer, and in 2012 was named assistant director of planning for development coordination.
“Marc has excelled in every role he has held with DelDOT, and I am so happy that he will serve in this critical role for the department going forward,” said DelDOT Secretary Jennifer Cohan. “Marc has a stellar reputation within the department and in the engineering and contracting communities. He is also highly respected by the members of the Delaware General Assembly and is often sought after for advice on development coordination issues within their legislative districts.”
Coté graduated from Lehigh University in 1989 with a bachelor of science in civil engineering. He has been a professional engineer for 26 years and is also a certified planner. Coté resides in Magnolia with his wife of 28 years and has three children.
