Joel DeNunzio

CULPEPER — Joel DeNunzio has been named residency administrator of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Charlottesville Residency. He will oversee VDOT’s daily operations and maintenance activities in Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene and Louisa counties.

DeNunzio has worked for VDOT for almost 18 years, most recently as the area land use engineer for the four counties in the Charlottesville Residency. He was responsible for review of the transportation impacts of land use applications and worked closely with local government officials and staff in those planning and land development activities.

“Joel has worked in the Charlottesville Residency since 2006 and has a great familiarity with the transportation issues and challenges in the southern part of the district,” said Jim Utterback, VDOT’s Culpeper District administrator. “In his previous positions he worked with the local governments, members of the business community and others and I’m pleased that he will now take this leadership role in the residency.”

DeNunzio has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Virginia and is a licensed professional engineer. He began his career with VDOT in the Location and Design section at the Central Office in Richmond. In 2006 he moved to the Charlottesville Residency as assistant residency administrator before becoming the area land use engineer in 2009.

VDOT’s Culpeper District comprises the counties of Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock and the city of Charlottesville. For more information about the district, visit the Culpeper District page on VDOT’s web site.
