Denver’s head of transportation and infrastructure leaving for job in Miami

The head of Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, Eulois Cleckley, will leave this summer for a similar position in Miami, city officials announced late Friday.

Miami-Dade County officials first announced Friday that Cleckley would be their next director and CEO of Transportation and Public Works. That forced Denver’s hand to share the news immediately.

Representatives from Mayor Michael Hancock’s office said Cleckley will leave his position this summer, though a precise departure date hadn’t been set.

“The direction of Denver’s mobility future is headed in the right direction because Eulois seized the opportunity to make it happen,” Hancock said in a news release. “While I’m sad he will be leaving the Denver team, I’m not surprised he was recruited to bring Denver’s mobility framework to Miami-Dade County. I know that Miami-Dade will be getting the same commitment and dedication he brought to Denver and we wish him the very best.”

Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure oversees everything from the city’s street paving and snow removal to traffic studies and clearing out homeless encampments.

Hancock will appoint Cleckley’s replacement which, under a new law, is contingent on approval from the city council.
