INDOT Commissioner Hendrickson Is Moving On as Funding Debate Heats Up

The Journal Gazette reports, “As legislators convened a major road funding session Tuesday [January 3], incoming Gov. Eric Holcomb announced he is moving the Indiana Department of Transportation commissioner to a different state agency. Brandye Hendrickson [link added] has headed INDOT since April 2015 and was a major player as state officials passed a short-term infrastructure plan last year. She also spent recent months on a blue ribbon task force examining road funding options for state highways and bridges to be acted on this year.” The report adds, “Hendrickson will now run the State Personnel Department. Holcomb did not immediately announce who he is appointing to run INDOT.”
