Governor Larry Hogan appointed Gregory C. Johnson as the new administrator of the State Highway Administration this week.
Mr. Johnson worked for the Michigan Department of Transportation and has 32 years of experience focusing on highway projects.
As reported by the Washington Post,
Johnson’s experience delivering highway projects will serve the state well as it moves to complete nearly $2 billion in road and bridge projects that he announced last month, Hogan said in a Thursday morning announcement.
“I am confident he is exactly the right person to provide smart and business friendly transportation solutions throughout Maryland,” Hogan said.
Johnson, who served as second in command at the Michigan Department of Transportation for six years, worked on similar projects there, where he implemented innovative strategies that led to cost savings, safety and better customer service.
