HARRISBURG – Transportation Secretary Allen D. Biehler, P.E., announced today that he has named Toby L. Fauver as deputy secretary for local and area transportation.
Fauver has served as acting deputy secretary for local and area transportation since June, a position he also held between February 2005 and February 2006. As acting deputy secretary, Fauver played a key role in the passage of Act 44, which completely revamps public transportation funding and oversight in the commonwealth.
In his new role, Fauver will direct 29 employees and oversee PennDOT’s implementation of Act 44.
Fauver joined PennDOT in 2004 as the bureau director for rail freight, ports and waterways. In 2005, Fauver became the bureau director for public transportation, a title he held until his reappointment as acting deputy secretary for local and area transportation in June. He also served as the project manager for the Governor’s Transportation Funding and Reform Commission.
Before joining Gov. Edward G. Rendell’s administration, Fauver was a transportation planning manager at Gannett Fleming, where he worked on transportation projects around the country.
Fauver earned his Bachelor of Arts in geo-environmental studies from Shippensburg University and his Masters degree in regional and community planning from Kansas State University. Fauver and his family live in Carlisle, Cumberland County.
