Mayor Vincent Gray (right) is nominated Terry Bellamy (left) to lead his Department of Transportation May 18.
Bellamy joined the District government three years ago as a deputy to former Director Gabe Klein. He says his priorities will be roughly the same as those of his predecessor.
"Many of the programs and activities that we've been doing have been planned for over 20 years and we'll continue to carry that forward," Bellamy says.
The Department of Transportation has been a hot spot of activity in recent years, with several new programs debuting, such as Capital Bikeshare, the Circulator bus service and the upcoming streetcar network.
