March 17, 2015

Mike Moriarty has been named bureau chief of transportation planning at the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT).

While finishing his master’s degree at the University of Kansas, Moriarty interned at KDOT for two years starting in 2000. He has served in several positions in the bureau including a transportation planner in the Metropolitan Planning group and manager of the corridor management unit. He has been the state transportation planner for the past two years.

Moriarty replaces Dennis Slimmer, who retired from KDOT after 45 years of service.

“I’ve always tried to collaborate and partner with everyone internally and externally,” Moriarty said. “That’s something that Dennis has done a great job at and I want to continue it.”

Originally from Omaha, Neb., Moriarty and his wife, Stacy, live in Topeka with their daughter, Taylor.
