The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) named Paul Worley director of the Rail Division.

“Paul brings a depth of experience and proven leadership that will strengthen North Carolina’s reputation for safety and building railroads, as we continue expanding and modernizing the state’s railroad system,” said NCDOT Deputy Secretary for Transit Richard Walls. “He will help us meet the challenges as we move forward toward a more dynamic and faster freight and passenger rail system.”

Worley will supervise the day-to-day operations for the division, which collaborates with railroads on safety oversight, strategic planning and freight and passenger improvements throughout the 3,300-mile rail system.

The Rail Division also operates two state-supported trains, providing passenger travel options, as well as efficient and environmentally-friendly transportation.
