     Working Together to Save Lives    

ALDOT's goal is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound inter-modal transportation system for all users, especially the taxpayers of Alabama. It is also to also facilitate economic and social development and prosperity through the efficient movement of people and goods and to facilitate inter-modal connections
within Alabama. ALDOT must also demand excellence in transportation and be involved promoting adequate funding to promote and maintain Alabama's transportation infrastructure.

The Department is organized into nine geographic regions called Divisions, with a Central Office located in Montgomery. The Central Office is organized into the Office of the Transportation Director and the Office of the Chief Engineer with Bureaus and Divisions reporting to the Chief Engineer. Additionally, the Department has several other boards and committees that operate either within a bureau or as a cooperative effort among several bureaus and/or divisions.
