Unclogging L.A.'s Streets

With a strong style and a common-sense approach, Gloria Jeff is taking on one of the world's most unenviable jobs: general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.

With Mayor Villaraigosa promising to address the city's traffic, newly hired General Manager Gloria Jeff has a lot on her plate. Arriving in Los Angeles with a wealth of state and federal experience, having recently run the Michigan State DOT and having served in the U.S. DOT under President Clinton, she now hopes to tackle the unique challenges presented by the sprawling city and its neighborhoods.

"In this MIR interview, Ms. Jeff explains some strategies for using technology, securing new funds, and coordinating with city departments, such as planning, to keep L.A. moving."
