Dallas District Engineer

Ceason Clemens, P.E., is the district engineer for TxDOT's Dallas District.

The district includes seven counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Navarro and Rockwall.

Clemens earned her Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Texas A&M University in 2005. She began her TxDOT career as summer hire in the Bryan District before joining TxDOT full-time as an Engineering Assistant in Dallas District’s Collin County Area Office. While in Collin County, she went through the district’s engineering rotation program and later served as design manager. She also managed construction of Texas’ first single point urban interchange at US 75 and Parker Road.

Clemens obtained her Professional Engineering license in 2009. In 2011, she moved to the district’s Project Delivery Office to work on procurement and construction of the $798 million design-build project known as the Horseshoe project, which rebuilt the downtown Mixmaster. She then became the district’s Alternate Delivery Engineer, a role where she oversaw construction of multiple design-build projects that together were valued at $3.7 billion. Clemens was named the Director of Transportation Planning and Development in August 2017 and was named the Deputy Dallas District Engineer in July 2018.

The Plano native is the 2019 recipient of the Gibb Gilchrist Award for outstanding service to the state of Texas in TxDOT. She also received the prestigious Dr. L.I. Hewes Award in 2020 from the Western Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. In 2021, Clemens led a Dallas District I-30 Canyon planning team that earned the President’s Award for planning from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

She oversees a portfolio of planning projects valued at $28 billion, a construction portfolio of traditional construction projects valued at more than $2 billion, and multiple district-led design-build projects in construction valued at more than $2 billion.
