The Department of Transportation is a part of the Government of New Brunswick. It is charged with the maintenance of the provincial highway network and the management of the province's automobile fleet.

The department was established in 1967 when Premier Louis Robichaud split the Department of Public Works and Highways. In 2012, it returned to these roots when it was merged with most of the Department of Supply and Services to form a new Department of Transportation and Infrastructure.
