Kimberly Garner, P.E., has been named as the new area engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) office in Mount Pleasant effective July 1, 2018. The Mount Pleasant Area Office is responsible for state highway maintenance and construction in Camp, Morris, Titus and Upshur counties.

“We feel very fortunate to have someone of Kim’s knowledge and experience coming in to replace Bill Compton, who is transferring to our Waco District to become that district’s director of construction,” said Mike Anderson, district engineer for TxDOT in Atlanta.

Garner graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 2000. Prior to graduation, she worked the summers of 1997 and 1998 in the Texarkana Area Office. Upon graduation, she began her career working for a highway contractor, constructing portions of Loop 151 and I-549 in the Texarkana area.

Kim returned to TxDOT as an engineering assistant in 2002, rotating through area offices, district design, advance planning in the Atlanta District and the environmental division in Austin.  She became a licensed professional engineer in 2006. In 2010 she returned to the Texarkana area office where she has been the assistant area engineer since 2013.
