AASHTO Journal, 24 April 2015
Melinda Peters has resigned as administrator of the Maryland State Highway Administration, the Baltimore Sun reported, a position that involved her in many committee activities at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
Peters had been named to that position, which reports to the state transportation secretary, in November 2011 by former governor Martin O’Malley. She was the highway agency’s first female administrator, the AASHTO Journal reported at the time.
Earlier, she had headed the Intercounty Connector project that pulled together a public-private partnership to build the largest state highway project in Maryland history.
The Sun reported that she was the second chief of a modal agency to depart recently from the Maryland Department of Transportation, amid changes under new Gov. Larry Hogan, who took office in January and named Pete Rahn as transportation secretary.
