A Legacy Driven by a Passion for Transportation



Neal McCaleb is a venerable figure in Oklahoma and celebrated for overseeing the expansive growth of Oklahoma’s transportation infrastructure throughout much of our state’s history.

He served as Oklahoma’s first Secretary of Transportation and Director of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation under Gov. Henry Bellmon and served in those roles again under Gov. Frank Keating. Most recently, McCaleb headed the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority as its interim executive director during a crucial period.

Under his leadership, the OTA began implementation of the Driving Forward program, a plan to rehabilitate and modernize existing turnpikes and provide new routes to increase public safety.
