JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) = The Missouri Department of Transportation’s chief financial officer has been named interim department director.

The Highways and Transportation Commission on Wednesday appointed Roberta Broeker to take over when current director Dave Nichols retires May 1.

Broeker has been the department’s chief financial officer for the past decade. The commission plans to name a permanent director in the fall.

The leadership change comes after the commission in February approved a scaled-back maintenance plan that will keep only one-quarter of Missouri’s 32,000 miles of roads in top condition starting in 2017.
