James Wolfe, PE


District 6 Secretary
Florida Department of Transportation

Jim Wolfe has served as District Secretary to both the FDOT District Four and Six regions and has been an effective advocate for design-build on many important Florida projects. Whether it’s the award-winning Veterans Memorial Bridge, the $1.3 billion I-595 Express P3 or the multi-phased I-75 Express, Jim has shown time and again the effectiveness of Design-Build Done Right™ principles in action. Jim has been a strong advocate for DBIA’s Best Practices and has co-presented on this topic at the DBIA’s Design-Build for Transportation Conference. Jim’s work embraces the triple-bottom line results possible with design-build. Most recently, FDOT’s design-build project along SR 836/I-395/I-95 included many community elements and will help reclaim pedestrian access beneath the elevated interstate. The project includes a signature bridge and improved mobility, safety and other enhancements. Jim’s leadership on this project and many others illustrates why we say, “Design-build is only as successful as the owners who implement it.” Florida continues to succeed thanks to design-build leaders like Jim.
