Doug Failing, the Caltrans district director overseeing Los Angeles and Ventura counties, announced Thursday that he is leaving to serve as executive director of highway programs for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Failing has been working at the agency since leaving college and has been District 7 director since 2002. In a letter to his staff, he said he was resigning for financial reasons.

Failing said his salary at Caltrans was $136,500 a year, but with mandated furloughs it was roughly $116,000. His job at the MTA will pay $175,000.
