The first episode of the agency’s new podcast featured Shanté Hastings, Delaware DOT deputy secretary and chief engineer, discussing the value of roundabouts in terms of traffic flow and roadway safety.

“Delaware DOT joins a number of transportation agencies around the country that are utilizing podcasts as a way to offer information and insight into the world of transportation,” noted Nicole Majeski, Delaware DOT secretary, in a statement. “In the months ahead, we will cover a variety of topics about the work we are doing to maintain and improve our multi-modal transportation system.”

Delaware DOT is now one of several state departments of transportation producing regular podcasts that touch on a wide variety of topics.

For example, the Michigan Department of Transportation hosts a podcast called “Talking Michigan Transportation,” which touches on anything and everything related to mobility, including rail, transit and the development of connected and automated vehicles.

recent episode of that podcast focused on an additional $2.6 million being invested in 13 community projects as part of construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

Meanwhile, the “Extra Mile” podcast produced by the Mississippi Department of Transportation seeks to take the state’s traveling public “behind the scenes” of transportation infrastructure.

It covers topics like construction updates, technology in transportation, legislation affecting the agency, current transportation related information and more via interviews with Mississippi DOT employees and leaders, along with industry stakeholders as well as other government officials.

And the New York State Department of Transportation hosts “The D.O.T P.O.D.” that also examines a variety of topics, from trade skill training partnerships to winter operations.
