Daubenberger has been with the agency for 22 years in engineering and management positions, according to a news release, and has led MnDOT since Commissioner Margaret Anderson Kelliher left to lead Minneapolis Public Works.
"Nancy Daubenberger has immediately taken up MnDOT's mission to provide safe, reliable transportation for all Minnesotans," Walz said in the release. "With experience in management and engineering, she has quickly made an impact."
