The Idaho Transportation Board has announced Chief Deputy Scott Stokes will serve as the new director of the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), beginning in the spring of 2022 and succeeding retiring director Brian Ness. Ness will continue to lead the department and Stokes will serve as chief deputy until he takes the helm on May 29. Stokes has served as ITD’s chief deputy the past 15 years. He is a leading advocate of the drive to achieve zero deaths on Idaho highways by promoting driver responsibility and accountability. Stokes joined the department in 1991 and served several roles, including district engineer in the Coeur d’Alene area for 11 years. He also was the state bridge engineer early in his career. Stokes will become the eighth director since ITD formed into a statewide transportation department in 1974. Governor Brad Little said Stokes shares his goal of making Idaho’s transportation system as safe and efficient as possible and that Stokes is also passionate about providing Idahoans the best level of customer service. Little praised Stokes’ extensive experience and strong leadership abilities.
