Michael Presley

My name is Michael Presley and I served 30 years at GDOT, retiring in 2021 as the District Engineer for the District 3 Thomaston Office.

I began my career at GDOT in the Statewide Office of Traffic Operations.  I was there when the TMC was built and helped deploy the initial NaviGAtor program, which was the beginning of ITS in Georgia.   While at the state office I supported implementation of the TMC’s in the local metro counties and in the City of Savannah.  My experience continued with multiple ITS field deployments in Macon, Columbus, and throughout District 3.  Most recently I championed the creation of the district operations center in Thomaston, the first of its kind.  Throughout my 30 year career with GDOT, I’ve been an ITS champion at the state, district, and local level, and look forward to engaging with the ITS industry and focusing on new ideas and challenges.

My election to the ITSGA Board will allow me to serve in the industry that I know and love.  I look forward to bringing my thoughts, ideas, vision, and energy to ITS Georgia.
