After a 31-year career in the department, Michigan Department of Transportation Director Kirk Steudle is set to retire effective October 31. He’s served as director since 2006 and was the first cabinet member from the Granholm administration that Governor Rick Snyder asked to stay on. He began his career with MDOT in 1987 and has held various positions throughout his tenure, including chief deputy director, Bay Region engineer, and Metro Region deputy region engineer.
“Director Steudle has been a fixture of Lansing for decades. Through his long career he has gained institutional knowledge and experience that will be hard to replace,” said Matt Sowash of MLC. Governor Snyder has not yet announced either an interim or permanent appointment for the department director’s position.
