Carlos Braceras

Utah Department of Transportation

Executive Director


Carlos Braceras is executive director of the Utah Department of Transportation, a position he has held for three years. A native of New Jersey, Carlos came to work at UDOT in 1986 because, quite honestly, he loved the skiing in Utah.


In the 30 years that have passed since then, he has helped to shape UDOT’s strategic direction and its mission of innovating transportation solutions that strengthen Utah’s economy and enhance the quality of life, making it one of the most respected and influential DOT’s in the nation.


Today his influence extends beyond the state of Utah through his service on a number of national and regional boards and committees, including his current assignment as president of the Western Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
