TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Department of Transportation has restructured its top management and hired two high-ranking administrators from other state agencies.
Secretary Mike King says Kent Olson is KDOT's new director of fiscal and asset management. Wade Wiebe (WEE'-bee) will oversee dealings with groups inside and outside of state government as director of partner relations.
Olson is filling an existing position that was vacant, but KDOT is adding some duties. He's a former inspector general at the state Department of Administration.
KDOT created Wiebe's job by adding responsibilities to a deputy secretary's position that had been vacant. Wiebe formerly was a program manager at the state Department of Commerce.
